No such thing!

To be picky about the wording, there are "chromed stock rims," meaning a stock painted rim someone has blasted and chromed. VW never shipped them from the factory with chrome rims.

There are also aftermarket chrome rims that resemble stock wheels. Be careful about offset, since they might be for T3s or Buses, which have different offset than Bugs, I hear.

The thing about offset is true. But I've never seen an aftermarket chrome rim for T3. They're all Bug offset, AFAIK.

if you are looking for a rim for a Type 1, why the post here in the Type 3 forum?
