I have an 07 Avalanche with the 20in. factory wheels. I would like to get these chromed. Has anyone else done this? What about plastic center caps, can they be chromed?
 
Should be possible Darrel Waltrip when he was still racing in Nascar said a guy came up to him and told him his company could crome anything so Darril handed him his helmet and said "crome this" and he did.
 
There is a guy on ebay that does them including the center cap.  You pay for them (plus deposit) and send your originals back to get the deposit back.

Those look really good. does anyone have a pic of the stock 03 17" rims that have been chromed and on their av? I not sure there might be to many "flat" spots. here is a link? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/17-Chevy-Tahoe-Suburban-Factory-OEM-Chrome-Wheels-Rims_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ43957QQihZ020QQitemZ300134737607QQtcZphoto . let me know what you guys think.

P.S. sorry for asking in your thread. don't think i'm jacking it.
 
Might be able to chrome the wheels, but GM won't warranty the wheels after that...  also, the plastic cap might not be the right material that will live after being plated.

You might be ahead to sell your wheels to someone else and buy a set of GM 20" Accessory wheels- multiple chrome designs are available.
 
That link shows the wheels are made in China. Is that true? Gm factory wheels are chinese  ??? (n)
 
I was thinking the same thing after I first went to that link.  I plan to rotate mine this weekend, and if it's true (I mean, if mine have the same on the backs) I'll post back here.
 
the wheels do look great chrome. . i chrome just about everything on my 954 rr crotchrocket and i went through classic components out of cali. there # is1-888-327-4189.   they do have a great web site.   they mostly chrome motorcycle parts, wheels, frame, ect.   and they do vehicle wheels as well, check them out. hope it helps. . . . .

These look awesome...the way they should have from the factory.  Does anyone actually have a set of these on their Av?
