Picked up the chrome wheels last week, (no I never did get my letter but the dealer can order them for you). Based upon what others have done, I did take the gray paint off the back side with thinner and yes they are all chrome. They look a lot better without the painted backside. Also mounted the Nitto 315 on the stock rim and in my opinon looks great (others may not but to each his own). No clearance issue as well, (thanks Harry). Harry, you will like the way these look on the DSG!!!! If I can borrow a camera I will post pictures, that is assuming the snow does not arrive tomorrow as predicted.
