That's funny you ask :tongue: When I was at a local "Ghetto Style" shop, they had some gold and chrome wheels in 20" and 22" size's. I thought just for a moment that they might look nice on my black SE.... the I shook that thought. I guess you can take "homie" out the hood, but you can't take the hood out of "homie" :eek:
So to answer your question, yes they are made, but sorry it didn't get the brand names of any of them.

ummmm..ok!! not tryin to open up a can of rowdy worms, but out of curiousity, whats a "ghetto style" shop??

i was lookin at "under the tables" rims (LLC by MHT i believe) and said to myself.....you know what self, those rims would look even better if everything that was chrome was gold plated since thats the color scheme i'm going for on my car!! my only problem is currently i am in iraq and can't visit a rim shop at this time, however, i have found a place that will gold plate a whole rim for $150. so i figure either have the whole rim gold plated and then have a paint shop color match the spokes in some kind of way or contact this gold plating company and see how much less just getting the lip gold plated would be!!

Not trying to be an ass, but if you have to ask, then.... well I will explain. It is a shop where you can go down, pay cash, cause that is all you would trust them with..... definately not the type of place you would want to hand your credit card over to. They probably have a lot of product that "fell off the truck", yet they have are a licensed store front and have enough legitimate products to keep the law away. You don't pay tax, and they are more than happy to take your wheels in on trade because they will find a buyer. One of those places where you can buy a $3000 set of wheels for about $1200 which would include mounting and balancing. Is that enough of a description. And you may even see the character below purchasing his wheels and tire's there..... oh yea, that would be me :) no rowdy worms here.

nope nope nope....not looking for a gold face rim with a polished lip!! I just want a rim similar to the style of the LLC by MHT with a gold LIP...the rest of the rim would color match the car!!
