    Absolutely no advantages except for looks, cause polished aluminum just looks more manly than chrome. But hey, they are a bitch to keep shiny. Oh yeah, they are less expensive than chrome so thats two advantages.Might be lighter than chrome too so thats three .

    For the record TTII's are not a full chrome wheel. Only the spokes and center cap are chrome the lip is polished. Just something to keep in mind before you spend an extra $100 a wheel.

    So even on Chrome TTII's you still have to polish (use real polish not wax) the outer lip on ttii's to keep it looking like the rest of the wheel ?
    WTF!

    Can anyone give us some close up shots of this...?
