HRE Monoblock P40 Chrome Alternatives ??

These wheels are incredible, no doubt & exactly the "look" I'm going for. I just don't want to spend $6,000 for wheels.

I've looked at Avant Garde, Alufelgen SF-71 but those don't come polish chrome. Short of just paying to have the less expensive wheels chromed, I was just curious if somebody made a polished chrome wheel in this style? I've looked but haven't seen any.

Thanks

"polished chrome" really? Are you also doing a nice gold paint job to match your gold teeth as you cruise around town to collect from your girls....

There is no shortage of idiots on message boards who just like to stir things up..whatever.

I know lots of people prefer the brushed silver look over the high polish chrome look. There are plenty of cars around still with the polish chrome wheels & I think they look nice. There are plenty of BMW's with polished chrome wheels.

I NEVER bag on somebody for what they might like. People should get what looks good to them and not care what others think.

Do a Google search of Ferrari with Chrome wheels and check out the yellow Ferrari with chrome wheels. It looks cool. To each his own.

I realize it's more "old school" now. The majority of people now are going with non chrome, gunmetal v,black etc. That's great. I haven't actually decided which wheels I'm getting for sure and I do like the Morr's, HRE's Alufelgens, etc. that are not chromed.

The black I wouldn't do because it's not the look I want but I wouldn't tell somebody who has them on their car they have bad taste..childish.
