i have been tossing around the idea of getting my wheels chromed or polishing them somehow, anyone know of any good shops and a ruff price to get it done?

Might be cheaper to buy a new set and use those for drag radials
But I wanna know of a good local chromer

probably cost a good amount to dismount, chrome, then mount again.

I would get some replicas and even some 10.5 wide rears.

In my opinion, stay away from chrome. They look nice the first season you have them, and then it's all down hill from there. Pitting, chipping, peeling etc. Find a good powdercoater and make them black!

after seeing your car, black chrome would be sick... other great idea is use those current rims as drag ones and get some sweet aftermarkets

i wouldnt worry about chrome not lasting more than a year on your car... lol you'd have to actually drive it first ;)
