Seriously looking at the AFS Cobra wheels.

However I don't know the advantages (or disadvantages) of the polished over the chrome.

Should I opt for the chrome? Or the polished?

Please help?

TIA,
FF

I love the way they look! ...but why chrome? Are they easier to maintain? Easier to clean? ...what.

Oh hell yes, they are much easier to care for. I had a set of polished aftermarket wheels on my old toyota truck and it was a nightmare! No matter what I did they wouldn't stay looking good for more then a week! I also had the factory 01 polished and clearcoated wheels on my Cobra. Now since they were clearcoated they required much less maintenence, but chrome just kicks major ass! They require practically no maintenence at all. Just apply chrome polish to them once and a while for good measure.

Is there really a difference in the quality of the SVT Chrome rims, compared to the AFS Chrome rims? This may have been answered before, but i was just curious.

I don't know honestly...But what MAIN advantage nobody looks at is if my wheel(Ford) rusts or has any defect I can take it in and get it warranteed...while with the others I dont know what their policy is?

chrome baby
These are my stock rims chromed, not from ford. iT costed me 800. the ford option i think is 600 but its ass. These are triple dipped and some other stuff done to them that involved multiple large multi sylable words that I can't remember. Galpin ford did these for me third party after I saw the ford factory chromes and almost :vomit:
