    Old style chrome wheels on.

    I am a bit of old school and love chrome wheels on any car. I thought why not get a set for blue eyes. The after market does not have what I like. So I took a set of OEM shipped them to Cali. This was all done for looks and not performance. I could have purchased lighter rims but that's not what I wanted to see.

    But my taste says it would be even better if the car were FW. The darn downside to this is the super abundance of brake dust this thing sheds, turning wheels and anything that comes close to them a dull gray.

    I like it. Not sure if it would look better or worse without the chrome center cap. Is this true chrome or some other finish?

    It's true triple plate chrome. These were 19 inch OEM RS wheels. Still have the dark gray center caps. They did look sharp with them on. I may switch it up a bit. I'll eventually take better pics and post. Still snow and salt on the ground. Literally put two on the car took pics and back in the garage. Call me anal but my babies don't see nasty weather.

    I drift with my Expeditions in the snow.

    I'm old school too and I love chrome, but IMO that wheel is too busy for chrome. I think a 5 spoke wheel in chrome would look much better. Regards.

    See I love the multi spoke look on this car and love the chrome on the multispoke. They have so many more little details etc. for the light to hit.
