New PVD chrome wheels
 
I did the PVD chrome wheel exchange with US wheel exchange. They came out great!

Very nice!

I posted the other day black chrome picture of the OEM 20" rim. I want to try to see what the black chrome would look like mounted. How much did the exchange run you?

I did the same to my wheels on my Laredo X, I love they way they turned out too - yours look great!! You can check mine out under "Members Rides" under the thread "Here's My X"....US WheelExchange was really slow on returning my deposit, took them over a month for me to get it after tons of phone calls, but they do have a great product....

First off--wheels look great! I want to chrome mine when I get them because these are honestly the best stock wheels on any vehicle I've ever seen. With that said....

$1100?? OMG!

Look at this link. This is for PURCHASING 4 PVD wheels outright for only $899. You paid $1100 just for an exchange (essentially chroming your existing wheels). Sorry but that's outrageous. You could buy these, and sell your stock Overland Painted wheels and recoup most of the cost.

I posted that link a couple of days ago. But I wouldn't feel comfortable buying them. First off MSRP is 333 a wheel, thats over 1200 MSRP NOT PVD chromed. Else they are getting these rims cheap take offs or something I dont know, but regardless something has to be different because at 900 thats far below MSRP without the PVD process, ebay fees etc. That person does have great feedback though

Exactly...they have great feedback. If they sell in mass quantity, who knows. With the feedback score where it is, I wouldn't worry. I found a deal like that back in 2008 on some chrome wheels that I bought for $450 for the set (no kidding) from a company doing business on e-bay in the New York/Long Island area and their feedback was 99.X% positive. The rims were great and I never had any problems. I definitely believe in being careful but I don't see a problem here based on their feedback. To be honest, it says they only have three sets and by the time I get my JGC, if they're still available I'll be buying a set and selling my stock overland wheels.
