Yes, to a degree ... but I think you will find this to be true on all the chomies out there. There is still chrome there, but its just not as smooth/shiny as the outside surfaces because of surface preps.FiveOJoe said:Does the quality of the chrome finish diminish on the rim area behind the spokes? I was curious as my wifes Chrysler chrome wheels are great on the surface but looking through the spokes the rims don't have the same quality finish.
Thats the story I got from Corvette Mike's too. He said there repro wheel was US made, and only was 1~2 lbs heavier.KevinB said:I talked to a guy at Corvette Wheel Specialists, and he told me that repro chromes are either made in America or Tiawan (sp?). He claims the American made wheels are only 1-2 pounds heavier than OEM. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to weigh them - I was wondering if anyone could verify this claim...
