In Reply to: Chroming my 5 spokes??? posted by marc on March 02, 2001 at 21:18:38:

Well, I'm on the west coast so that doesn't help. But I did investigate chroming my 5 spoke rims a while back. The local shop here in SJ, Wheel Techniques, is highly regarded. Well, they cautioned me from chroming "used" rims. Meaning the chrome will eventually peel off. Apparently the alloy is porous and the "used" chrome will not adhere perfectly as it would with new virgin alloy chromed directly from the manufacturer.
