Any clue when we will be able to get the non chrome wheels? I ordered a redline in april with stock wheels and all they have is chrome. Anyone have a idea what the hold up is with stock wheels? I know I know why don't I just get chrome well I don't want them :)

Thanks as always you guys are great on here.

Looking at what is being posted on this forum there seems to be no restrictions on ANY wheels. Only the polished and chrome wheels are available on the Redline with the polished as std. and Chrome as a $575 option.

i agree there hasn't been a constraint on any wheels for about a month at least.

I think you tried to do a cut and paste.

Here is the deal on wheels for the Skys.

Standard Sky - painted aluminum wheels STD, polished wheels OPT, chrome wheels OPT. ALL of the wheels are the same except for the finish.

Redline Sky - painted wheels N/A, polished wheels STD, chrome wheels OPT. Exactly the same wheels as the Standard Sky.

If you oreder a Redline, part of the price difference in the Redline package is the upgrade on the finish of the wheels from painted as standard equipment to polished finish as standard equipment. There you go. There are no "constraints" om polished wheels, so the dealership you are talking to is pulling your chain, or you are confused, or THEY are confused. HTH.

Bolt pattern is 5" X 110mm. It's an oddball pattern so be careful when you shop wheels. Also, the "setback" is (I believe) 55mm. Setback = offset = ask the vendor "is this the CORRECT wheel for this car"? Tire Rack, and any other the supporting vendors here can help you.

this is a 5x110 with a 45mm offset....largest u can go is 22 without rubbing but u have to use rubberbands for tires and the ride will feel like crap. I recommend a 20"inch rim with a 245 30 series tire then u still have the ability to lower it without rubbing
