Any difference in Detroit rims?

I have a 2013 base. Did my wheel bearings and noticed a wobble around 50 mph that gets a little worse as I go faster. Took my car to get rebalanced and the wobble turned out to be a bent rim. Going to get a replacement but first I was wondering if there are any differences like lighter or darker chrome shades before I get one. I was going to get new wheels but the Detroitís grew on me. Itís pretty crappy in Maine in the winter so I never really got going fast enough to notice. Also I just figured the roads are bad (especially in the winter) and the suspension is so stiff that I was feeling imperfections in the road. Canít wait to get the wheel and feel how stable it is at high speeds. Also glad wheel bearings on volkswagens are relatively easy. I was always intimidated by doing car work but learning that it isnít as hard as it seams as long as you can follow directions. That being said I donít think Iím going to try to carbon clean on my own. Watched that video and think I will get some help for that one. Anyway thanks in advance.

There are no differences in Detroits but make sure you don't get Huffs by accident, which are dark gray instead of black.
