Chrome Rims

Chrome rims are the most popular rims available today. Chrome wheels add a touch of class to a car and provide the ultimate upgrade to any car, new or used. Many car aficionados choose to add chrome rims to their vehicles.Chrome rims are also designed to suit other vehicles such as motorcycles.Chrome rims are polished with a chrome mirror finish that shines in the light.

They undergo a multi-step chrome plating process. Rims made from cast aluminum can be easily transformed into chrome rims. In addition to standard silver, chrome rims are available in black chrome.Chrome rims must be carefully chosen according to the type of vehicle. The weight of the chrome rims must be proportional to the vehicle's weight. Any difference in the weight ratio affects the car's performance.

The maximum load rating of the rim must be compatible with the vehicle it is to be used on. The holes for the lugs on the chrome rims must match the lugs on the vehicle's tires.Chrome rims can be installed either by exchanging an existing wheel rim of the vehicle with chrome rims, or by plating the existing wheels with chrome. The process of chrome plating is quite simple. The wheels are cleaned to remove dirt and grime.

The wheel surface is plated with copper and polished to ensure a smooth surface.A layer of nickel is then added followed by a layer of chromium, which creates the shiny appearance.Chrome rims are easy to clean and only require an application of chrome polish and buffing. Care should be taken to avoid contact with road salt during winter months, as salt could damage the chrome finish.

Chrome rims aren't cheap and the good looks do come at a cost. Chrome rims cost between $200-$500 each for lower-end rims. At the upper end of the price scale, the cost of a chrome rim can be as high as several thousand dollars.
