    You gotta send them to Mexico to get anything that looks good.

    You might want to look at places in TX or CA.

    Somewhere where they can take the parts over the boarder into mexico and get them plated. then bring them back into the US for shipment back to you.

    The amount of Chrome that has to go onto wheels is a lot, and the only places that do it good are in mexico. The US/EPA regulates it so much that they cannot do it to well in the US.

    This is what I was told when I had a set of wheels I wanted to get re-chromed.

    thanks for the info..


    i am just a little skeptical of shipping, considering the size and weight of the wheels (shipping costs)..

    i got a set of 22's for the expedition for $300 with brand new tires... id say its worth spending the extra $300 for fixing the rims (only 2 rims need fixing) hehe
