I think you are asking whether or not they have a chrome or aluminum finish. I don't think chrome (chromium alloy) is strong enough to make wheels out of :).

They do not have a chrome finish. They are painted silver and have a clear coat on them. I can only assume is the same clear coat as the rest of the car.

:) my bad, chromium allow I meant. So, are aluminium allow or.....? I wanna use a Klasse Sealant on them and I'm not sure if it will damage the clear coat or not.

There is no such thing as a wheel made of chrome.

BMW offers no rims with a chrome finish :thumbdwn: That's so 80's! If you ever see current BMW rims with a chrome finish, they are either not OEM or have been chromed by some other party (or dealer) after market.
