Chrome wheels have a highly polished, mirror-like finish. The wheel is usually polished, and then plated with a layer of nickel, then bronze, then chrome. The nickel adheres to the wheel which then allows the bronze to adhere to the nickel which then allows the chrome to adhere to the bronze. Chrome plating can add 2-3 pounds to each wheel. The finish is very shiny and reflective. However, brake dust, road salt, cold climates and salt air can cause chrome plated finishes to pit & peal. This is a major problem with chrome plated wheels, which require a lot of cleaning to avoid surface damage. Chrome wheels should be removed during the winter months. Regardless of the precautions you take, most chrome plated wheels will start to pit & peel in one to two years. We Fix Wheels Houston Wheel We can repair or refinish many aftermarket

It is highly recommended that you consider a new set of PVD wheels before committing to the expense of re-plating your existing chrome wheel. The turn-around time for chrome plating is 4-6 weeks.
