Thanks Jeff :thumbup: just wanted to make sure they weren't offered in the color of my 67. Sage Gold Metallic.

I haven't heard of that problem with the 68 style steel wheels, but I guess it's possible. If the outer rim is in good shape and the chrome is in good shape. I wouldn't worry to much about having a rust issue between the two where the surfaces mate together. if your rim is real rusty then I could see it being a concern. At that point I would go with the repo's.
