Chrome Wheels VS Chrome Plated Wheels
(-----) February 25, 2008
Is there much difference in Chrome wheels and Chrome Plated wheels? Are the Chrome Wheels a better quality for lasting endurance VS the plated ones? I was unaware there were Chrome Plated Wheels out there. I'm shopping on the internet and saw this on a web site. Thank you, DavidDavid Harris

There is no such thing as solid chrome wheels, David. Please see our FAQ about chrome. However, even the experts who plate these wheels for a living consider them to be very fragile. Like flowers they are things of beauty but little durability :-)
