Now I know who outbid me on that nice set of painted rims.

Not sure where to get that done. I am very curious also. Have you not had any luck getting chromed rims redone? I have a couple extra sets.

I've had these fora long time, I have several sets of Chrome Rims, tried to get a couple sets rechromed and not happy with the outcome. DecidedThat I will try to get the painted ones done. Maybe I will come out with one good set...

I did some google searching the other day. I think there are some places in Dallas that do chroming.

California Chrome Wheels. I have sent 2 sets to them, 1 chrome & 1 painted. Got the show chrome treatment. That's polished face & barrels. They do awesome work. The chrome set still shows the pock marks where the pitting took place. The painted set looks perfect, but burrs snag any towel that wipes the barrel. Don't know if they were already there when I sent them out. Check for & address any irregularities on the barrels before sending. They will send you pics of the finished wheels while on their dock before boxing & shipping. They ship Fedex & a signature is required.
