Which model are these stock on?
 
As per the title, I saw these on ebay, which does these come standard on? My overland as everyone else's has the same style, mine are polished however, not chromed. Are these summit rims?

I think I found out.. PVD Chrome is not stock if I am correct. It is a process similar to chrome, but wont pit, peel etc.. USwheelexchange is one of the most popular companies that you order and send in core's if you want.

They have black chrome. I would love to see them on a Jeep mounted...

They are both Chrome OEM Wheels. The difference is the process of how they are chromed. The $999 wheels use the PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) and the more expensive wheels use the traditional chrome plating method. PVD is the newer more advanced method. Without going into all the details (you can look it up yourself), they'll look the same. It's the process of how they chrome them that drives the price.

Thanks yea, thats when I looked up PVD and noticed the difference between traditional chrome and PVD chrome process.

Would love to see black chrome OEM 20" on an overland etc.. Dont want to be the 1000+ guinea pig.. haha Need a set of winter rims/tires though. They do make R20 Blizzaks.
