Chrome Care

How to prolong the life of your CHROME   

* clean often with mild soap and water and wipe dry  (once a week in winter less often in summer)  


* make sure your wheels are free of brake dust and road grime by also cleaning the back of the wheel every few months


* rub wheel polish and buff to bring out the original shine


* you may want to apply a think layer of wax over the face to make future cleaning easier and to create a barrier between the face of the rim and harmful chemicals and salts


* switch out and store chrome rims over the winter months when chemical and salt use on roads is high

Deteriorating Chrome Rims

Can they be fixed?

peeling chrome
Because chrome rims are plated rather than painted, the process to restore damaged chrome is lengthy and expansive.  It produces toxic wastes and is heavily regulated by the EPA.  Due to the environmental hazards, re-plating isn't done locally.  Even after stripping the old chrome and re-plating with new, the wheel may not look great.
