Like that bike we rode with earlier for a bit? I'm still not sure what kinda bike that was. . . too many shiny parts, busy paint, and things spinning.

If you buy cheap chrome. Then the chrome chips off quick and easy. Chrome will never last as long as powered coat dose.

I had the rims chromed on my bike and love it.

a 4

But as someone previously stated, make sure that you get them chromed by a reputable chromer. I've seen a good number of wheels that start peeling off and . Don't forget that you're going to have more work to do to keep them clean and shiny too.

I can suggest you use Chrome City here in Houston. The guy had mine done in a week, replaced the bearings and it only cost $650
