Chrome wheels on a 2013 Overland
 
I was pretty disappointed that Jeep does not offer chrome wheels on the 2013 overland. I recently bought one and do like the look of chrome wheels over the dark silver.

I am thinking about buying a set of OEM wheels that have been chrome plated or PVD.

Can anyone give me any feedback on PVD chrome?

What other wheels have you guys put on your WK2's?

I'm not lookin for anything with a big lip or anything like that. Something subtle.

Try looking at www. detroitwheelandtire.com. I think they have what you are looking for but could be pricey. Good Luck.

I did the pvd exchange in 2011 after I bought my overland. I am very happy with the high quality finish and I do get alot of positive comments on them.

I've seen a factory polished finish on the Overland 20s.

The other options are to get Citadel 20s (slightly different styling, but would be totally OEM), or get the OEM style aftermarket chrome wheels (pretty low cost and would give you your OEM set to sell or to use with winter tires or offroad tires or something fun).

Once I use chrome vinyl on my running boards, I will consider using it on my wheels. Want to see how it would hold up first.

Those do look like chrome. How do they look in person? Closer to chrome or closer to polished?

Just like chrome. I treat them like paint . I apply a little polish and wax to them every so often to really make them pop.
