why does it look like your soft top is caving in on the side profile shot?

And here is a noob question, did toyota ever offer the oem wheels machine polished? I've seen them on a few mr2's but im not sure if it's just something people do themselves.

From what I've read, the chromed wheels were a rare factory option. IIRC, someone posted a part# on another post when this was previously debated.

***edit*** not to say he couldn't have had it done himself.

Anderson -- one of our members -- has the factory chrome wheels. I've communicated a few times with him about the chrome wheels. IIRC, they were factory, but the challenging problem is there is no factory part for the Chrome wheels vs. stock alloy wheels. Very confusing! I've had my stock alloy wheels surface polished (on ust the rims and "star pattern" and they look pretty nice. I've got a spare set of wheels that I may have polisehd inside and out so they have that kind-of chrome look to them. Another project sometime down the road -- long down the road, in this economy. :lol:

It's really almost no work to polish them yourself. Aircraft stripper, grinder with polishing cloth, dremmel with polisher, lacquer. Whole process takes about 20 minutes per wheel of actual work, about the same waiting on the stripper to work. You can do it it without the lacquer but its gonna dull alot faster down the road.

So are the wheels in the photo chrome or polished?

Best guess, I'm betting on the fact that the OP is into visual mods, and that the wheels aren't listed as being polished, that they're factory. I could be way off here though... only the OP will be able to say with absolute certainty.

+1

black wheels would look really nice and tie in the hood. I don't know what it is about that yellow but it looks amazing, similar to s2k yellow.
