Rims

Has anyone replaced factory rims on their Forester/Sunseeker with customized chrome rims? They weren't offered as an option when we ordered ours; however, the Lexington had the option.

I just installed these; They are not chrome but look just like chrome with no rusting, peeling, or polishing. The finish is applied like powder coating. AEX 189 Dually - it is a PVD finish.

They look great. What's the cost for the whole set?

They were $185.00 per rim (x 4) plus M & B and the special Dually air valves. Hubs and rear inner rims had to be painted black.

Beautiful! You kept original inner rim then. Does it keep the brakes cooler?

I think they just keep the coach cooler.
