GS wheels with the machine finish always looked best to me because it gives a slight chrome look. Also chrome wheels are heavier so it will decrease performance and mpg.

Yup. same here. The machines alumn ftw

The chrome layer will not add significant weight, don't let that myth be a factor.

I like the machine finish better, and I've had both.

My car is pearl white…. both of them are pearl in fact and one has the aluminum set of GS/94-95coupe rims and other has chrome set, tires are the same…I am really considering rechroming…but…to sure

It's subjective, but I've never seen a set of chrome 'GS' wheels that looked better than a clean set of stock 'GS' wheels.

Having had both, I like both lol The only bad side of the chrome it starts to peel, may rust and may give off issues with holding air and the maintenance of it is much more annoying.

Factory aluminimumum....matter of fact I'm putting a set on for a more comfortable ride to NALM this year.

The factory GS aluminum wheels I like. BUT they look forged to me and not cast. Does anyone know if they are forged or cast?

Also, keep in mind that aluminum can be polished to a brilliant shine similar to chrome.

I have had chrome plate wheels and they started to flake off the aluminum base, looking like crap and constantly needing polish and wax.
