    Polished alum looks better hands down. If you are driving on the wheels a lot, I would recommend chrome though. Polished is high maint and takes a lot of work to keep pristine where as chrome is not nearly as high maint to maintain.

    Polished aluminum.

    A little more work, but very much worth it.
    Plus, 4-5 years down the road, they won't start flaking.

    Chrome

    Chrome looks better, and is lower maintenance. Hence the reason why it costs more. IMO

    i owned polished tt 2's and ending up giving them away! polished aluminum is shit. buy polished if you want to spend all day polishing them evertime you wash the car just to get a finish that still does not compare to chrome! buy chrome, i will say it again buy chrome. windex it and whipe it off!

    peace

    lol windex?? I would def. not put windex on em, slap some chrome polish on em, I heard black magic is pretty good, and meguiars. Chrome may have a mirror like shine, but they are NOT mirrors or windows. lol.

    Polished for sure. You have to put the driveway time in but the reward is worth, chrome looks almost to fake for me....
