To Chrome or not?

With the Monaco Blue w/sprt pkg I think chrome wheels would look good. Dealer wants $1900 and Discount Tire will do it for $660 a duh. Thoughts anyone on how it would look?

Chrome all the way! I think it will really set off the monaco! I have gotten my stock rims chromed for $400 (wheel exchange program).

Wheel shops can chrome your rims. Remember tho that chrome is heavy and can add a few pounds per wheel.

Personally, I think chroming is out..... Plus, it adds unneccesary unsprung weight to your wheels.
