The painted wires were the most common, but I believe chrome was an 
option during part of the production.  A quote from "Original MGB" by 

"Wire wheels, chrome-plated fitted to the first 200 cars built for North 
American markets in 1962 but only quoted as a regular option on the GT at 
introduction in 1965 and shortly afterwards on the roadster.  
Discontinued in June 1971."

The book shows at least a couple of cars with this option.  I've seen a 
69 BGT with them.
