    Factory chromes for a '97. Hmm. you might find a decent set at a wrecking yard. Of course, they would be 8 years old now. :-(

    thanks for input....i have found a company in california that offers the exchange program. i will pay 700.00 for the chrome ones, then once they receive my old ones , then i would be reinbursed the money i paid for the chromies. so i may be going that route in about another month.

    Have you considered aftermarket rims? Not sure of the look you're going for but I got a set of escalade 17" wheels off ebay for my truck + about 80 shipping. Once you replace the center cap from Caddy with the blank disc there's no way to tell they are not OEM for the Burbon and they look sharp, I think.

    The stuff that stands out is the less common styles, it's always nice to have a little character with your ride.

    You'll have to send some pics once you get the new rims on.
