OK, here's the deal for anyone that following Ansen Sprint topic. I emailed AR last night, and had a response this afternoon. Here it is... Greetings! Thank you for your interest in American Racing! At this time, the Ansen Sprint wheel is only available in a fully polished finish. Thank you for the information about the incorrect descriptions on our website. I will make sure this is forwarded to the appropriate personnel to have the information corrected. Pricing and ordering information can be obtained from any American Racing retail dealer near you. If you need assistance finding a local dealer, please use the Dealer Locator on our website: http://www.americanracing.com/dealerlocator/index.asp?section=dlr I hope this information helps! Sincerely, American Racing [email protected] So, while it doesn't explain if there's been a change since early last year when I'd seen a painted version of this wheel, it does clear things up for me... and should for those that may be interested in ordering these wheels anytime soon, who may have had the same question. So, a silver star to AR for their prompt reply....and it looks like I'll be placing my order later this week.
