Konig on top, Gram Light on the bottom. Which finish and wheel looks better?
You won't have to worry about fading with the Konig wheel... they are already faded and look horrible.
There are different kinds of "neochrome". Each lip of the Gram Light is processed separately to insure a high quality, high color, dynamic finish. Konig's are placed 20 - 50 in a machine so the coating is dull without as much color, not as long lasting or as expensive (this is why they are only $200 per wheel as opposed to Gram Light's $1500 per wheel - although I'm sure brand name also plays into that).
$25 lug nuts vs $300 lug nuts...
See how the coverage differs? The colors?
In this case you pay for what you get. If you are trying to highlight the neochrome finish, why go for the cheap looking finish??
