Default Best place to re-rechrome H2 OEM wheels?

Anybody re-chrome their OEM chromed H2 wheels?

The chrome off our 2nd set of Special Edition H2 wheels is pealing, and I need to send them out to get rechromed. I want to stay with OEM wheels.

Here is the problem. No local chroming shops do wheels here.

The local tire/wheel shops send them to California somewhere to get plated.

Anyone have experience with this? Someone who does better plating than the cheap OEM plating which only lasts 2-3 years?

Do you want bright chrome or would you be interested in black chrome? I've got a connection that is doing top-notch black chrome. So nice that even I like it. Looks like a pool of oil.

Just be careful, don't use some fly by night company. I've known people including my own father who have sent stuff out to be dipped. Never heard from them again and everyone's parts are gone as well. Do research and read reviews on what ever company you decide to use.

I'd be interested in black chrome!

Any connections to get it done in Vegas?

Do you have some pics of an H2 with such wheels?

S@H Chrome and Powdercoating or Chromemasters both in Tennessee. They are considered to be the best in the business by all the top motorcycle builders
