As the title asked, did Cox ever chrome their mag wheels? I recently saw a wheel on ePay that appears to be plated, and I have one in my wheel box also. 

 

Anyone else seen one?

I suspect they were on the static models. There is a BRM with chromed wheels up now on ebay.

They did chrome the wheels on the static F1 kits.

I had a mint Cox  RTR BRM (slot car), it had plated wheels, I had asked Dokk about them, "" The first series of the RTR F1 (Ferrari & BRM)  had vacuum plated wheels and front suspension. Same with the small 1/32 scale  Ford GT RTR, that had plated wheels. These are obviously more scarce. No other Cox RTR models came with plated wheels ""

While true that the static models have "chrome" wheels, they are plastic, not magnesium.
