Should I buy chrome rims?
If your looking to give your vehicle that extra classy look, then chrome is hands down the way to do it.. Chrome isn't necessarily going to make your wheels stand out more than any other color, but it sure will make your car, truck, or suv stand out. It has a way of subtly adding class and luxury to your vehicle that no other color wheel can accomplish.
Are chrome rims safe to use in snow?
The salt that is used on the roads during snow has a corrosive property that will damage chrome plating on wheels. We would suggest you use your factory wheels during those wintery season where salt will be used on the road. If you absolutely don't want to compromise the luxury look of your ride during those times, be sure to rinse off your wheels very well anytime they may have come in contact with the salt in order to prevent any damage to your aftermarket chrome wheels. Please be aware that damaged to chrome wheels caused by salt is fairly easy to determine, and most wheel manufacturers will not warranty salt damage to chrome wheels.
What is PVD Chrome?
PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) chrome provides a similar look to chrome plating using a different application process more similar to powdercoating and more environmentally friendly. PVD is also more light weight and if done right, more durable than chrome in climates that encounter snow, or salt in the air. PVD is a great alternative to chrome, but under close comparison, still does not quite provide the same brilliance as traditional chrome
Why are Chrome Wheels so hard to find?
The process of chrome plating a wheel is considered to be highly toxic, and as a result the EPA and its international counterparts have established harsh regulations limiting the ability to produce chrome wheels as easily as before. As a result, many factories are limited on how many wheels they can chrome plate.
