    I would just google chrome plating with your zip or whatever you guys use up there. You're in Canada right?

    Thanks, there isn't anyone up here who will touch these. The problem is with the 10 spoke they have to attach an anode to each spoke. This requires an exclusive one-off setup. Guesstimates are around $1000/rim. I talked to atlaschrome in Houston, they might be able to do it for about $275/rim

    That's a huge difference in price.

    I thought about black chroming my rims but the prices were way too high, so instead ill be throwing a black powder coat with a silver lip for 75 a rim. Cant beat that price.

    Powder with a high polished lip and clear the whole thing, thats the ticket!

    what about the replica wheel companies that offer wheels on exchange? you send them your wheels, they send you a new set. that would have to be cheaper than rechroming. I work at a car dealership and they do that all the time.

    Here we go...., after a lot of searching and dead ends, I decided to send them to Wheel Repair Service in Santa Ana. Here are some before pics and I'll post pics when they come back. It will be a while as I'm using postal service both ways( saves on the ridiculous brokerage fees from UPS)
