The finish that reflects your style.
Chrome plating is a classic and aesthetically pleasing finish that has been used in the automotive industry for many years and is the benchmark by which wheel and parts finishing is measured. Our proprietary chrome plating process produces the highest quality chrome finish in the industry – backed by our industry standard limited warranty of 1 year.
Our chrome plating process starts by first fully stripping the wheel or metal part down to the bare metal with a liquid chemical strip. We then prepare the wheel for the chrome plating process by polishing the face and windows of the wheel with our meticulous multi-stage polishing process which is all done by hand.
We also offer our signature show chrome polishing, where we fully polish the inside of the wheel to create a OEM factory look.
After the wheel has been polished, it’s ready for our chrome plating process, which consists of copper, semi-bright nickel, bright nickel and chrome. After the copper stage, the wheels are buffed, cleaned and struck multiple times throughout the remaining stages of the plating process to provide the highest finish possible.
Got tired or damaged chrome? No worries! We can re-chrome plate almost any damaged wheel or metal part that has been previously chrome plated. It often requires a few more extra steps and care, but here’s how it works:
First, the old chrome must be removed. This is done with a chrome removal chemical strip, formulated for removing chrome finishes from metal surfaces. Next, depending on the condition of the wheel, it will get sent to polishing or to be sandblasted before polishing, which helps to remove as much pitting and corrosion as possible.
We then prepare the wheel for the chrome plating process by polishing the face and windows of the wheel with our multi-stage polishing process which is all done by hand for the highest quality control.
After the wheel has been polished, it’s ready for the chrome plating process, which consists of copper, semi-bright nickel, bright nickel and chrome. After the copper stage, the wheels are buffed, then cleaned and struck multiple times throughout the remaining stages of the plating process to provide the best finish possible.
All wheels are not equal. What that means is depending on how old and what condition your wheels were in when you brought them to us depends on the finished look. Your wheel may have visible pitting and/or corrosion, curb scrape or other damage, which is the reason you are wanting to re-chrome it, or the pitting and corrosion may be exposed further in the metal casting once the old chrome plating is removed from the surface and the wheel is now in the raw metal finish.
As pitting and/or corrosion are flaws in the aluminum alloy, they may still show through the final surface once re-chrome plated. We do our best to remove as much of this pitting and corrosion as possible, but some of the pitting, if deep enough in the casting, might be too large to be removed completely or filled in with the different layers of material applied during the chrome plating process.
We do the best we can to ensure your wheel looks as good as possible when it's re-plated, but please remember that this is a used, damaged part we are working with. Kindly, it is our job to manage expectations and if you are expecting and/or wanting your wheels or parts to look exactly like it did when it was brand new, we suggest purchasing new wheels or parts, as we cannot guarantee these kind of results. (We would be happy to discuss the option of purchasing new wheels or parts with you if this is the route you'd prefer to go with).
Exact pricing may vary and depends on the size, configuration and other unknown factors of your wheel or parts. For exact pricing, please call (805) 376-2113.
