I previously owned a 5th gen Camaro SS, and loved the optional polished 5-spoke SS wheels that were on it. When Sport Muscle came out with an exact replica, I had to have them for my new Buick Regal GS AWD. I ordered the car with the standard 19" alloy wheels, that have winter tires on, since I was going to get my summer tires later on 20" wheels. The Sport Muscle CM5 wheels are 20" × 9" , and are finished in bright PVD. I love the bright, chrome-like finish, that is all over the wheel, inside and out. The finish is very easy to clean and polish, resists brake dust very well, and from reading about the process, is about 2-3 pounds lighter per wheel than traditional chrome. I will only be using them in the spring, summer and fall, but the PVD finish is resistant to salt and chemicals, so you could run them in the winter. I'm happy with them so far, and the look awesome on my car!
