There’s just something about chrome that screams classic car. Whether it’s the huge chrome bumpers on a Chevy Fury, or the chrome wheels you may have on your classic T-Bird, the mirror reflection just can’t be emulated by plastic.
But there’s a price that you pay for the classic look. Chrome has a long list of issues, like pitting or chipping, not to mention the many environmental hazards. Nowadays, you don’t see too much chrome rolling down the road like you used to.
That’s why we are very excited to announce Wheelkraft NW and WheelhausMFG will start offering G-Chrome® treatment for your wheels, from Winona PVD Coatings, LLC.
