Yeah, this doesn't bother me. Having seen first hand the longevity, or lack there of, of chrome wheels of old, it makes enough sense. I have been fighting for quite some time with my "Chrome" wheels. Now mind you, I was able to have the wheels machined, at a cost and it corrects it temporarily. But I started having issues when the car was 4 years old, and I didn't know at the time, why the tires leaked so darned much. Then for a bit, I used the "gooooooop" which seemed to help a bit. But it still leaked, and if the tires got down below 20 PSI the leak would intensify, I had only a matter of hours before it'd go flat. Which of course didn't get any better with new tires..
As always, consider the average customer.. Do they, will they notice that these wheels are anything other than chrome? Unlikely. Will they appreciate non leaky wheels after a matter of years - I'd say yes.
I do still have the OEM wheels, mind you, but I have to fight with them, and even now, they need to be checked frequently.
