I'm wondering if anyone has tried chroming the front wheel on their Wing? How did it turn out? I've already chromed several parts, quite successfully, but not the front wheel. You could do the rear wheel too but it is hard to see anyway.

Thought about it

There are several on eBay for sale, big money. I thought about having mine chromed but the plating shop here in St. Louis would not touch it. They said they were concerned about the chrome chipping and flaking off. In asking 2 other shops I was told no one locally would do it so I decided just to polish what I could with mag wheel polish. That satisified me and saved me a bunch of money for other goodies.

He and his brother Rodney, have an outlet for chromed wheels. I bought a set (exchange) and am real happy with them.

I purchased an extra set of wheels and sent them to the website below. My original set of wheels will be for sale once I get the others back. Mine just arrived at the chrome shop yesterday, so it will be about another month before I see them.

Chroming wheels

Blue Knight it looks good in the photo. Did you polish out the rough area between the spokes (can't see from photo) before you chromed them or was each wheel pretty much chromed as is?

Chrome wheels are great. They are easy to clean too. Got these from Smithware..
