Black Chrome Rims
Hi everyone I'm looking to purchase a set of stock SS rims (20inch) done up in Black Chrome. is anyone selling a set or do you know where to find such a product? any help would be great thanks.
Check out these guys http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/4-OEM...Q5fAccessories I have had a number of e-mail conversations with Marcus Jaworski [firstname.lastname@example.org] good guy, very helpful. They do both straight out purchases and exchanges. The exchange will obviously cost you less. Here is one of our conversations....
You would be looking at $968.50 on exchange for the black chrome, Shipping both ways is a total of $502.00 and core deposit is $1000.00. This core deposit is refunded back once we receive your cores back. If you wanted Black chrome caps, I have them out being coated currently and the cost is $80.00 for the set of 4. Lugs we can’t do because the would scratch once a impact gun is used. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks for the quick reply Marcus. The wheels I was looking at on ebay states….
Note: This auction is for "outright purchase" sale and doesn't require any exchange
The buy now price is 1,995.00, I am assuming that this does not require me to send you my original wheels. So am I correct in assuming that the price would be as follows?
Black PVD Wheels – 1,995.00
Black PVD Centers – 80.00
Shipping – 251.00
Yes, your very correct. I thought you were asking about the wheels that were on exchange. Your pricing listed below is correct.

Looks like the price has come down a bit on them since I last talked to them. I did not end up purchasing a set from them, I am still patiently waiting on other options:rolleyes:
I have these wheels Marcus was great too work with if i have one complaint it would be that they do scrach easy so make sure you have a good tire guy do you work or they will f them up
I have also thought about this. But I have to admit, I though chrome would be more scratch resistant than he paint :facepalm:. I'm not sure what that isn't the case. And not offering to do the nuts is BS in my opinion. But, that said, I've been looking for a while now to find a teflon lined 22mm impact socket and all I can find is 21mm :help:
Where are they located Mat?
I have talked to Marcus and that seems to be a good deal. I didn't realize how easily they scratch I'm not sure I want to go that way if that is the case... I'll keep looking thanks for the info.

Another place that offers the Camaro wheels in black chrome is http://www.camarochrome.com/CAMARO-2...ME-WHEEL-.html but theirs are done on an exchange program as well and I wanted to keep my original wheels. I haven't ask them whether they offer theirs for straight out purchase, you could give Daniel or Mike a call at (615)431 2294 and ask.
I tried the "go it alone" route but most companies that do electroplating here in Canada either didn't do black chrome or were too big to bother with a one off set of wheels. I did however have an e-mail conversation with Dan Pitz at Kuntz Electroplating Inc. they are a Canadian company located in Kitchener. He said they might be able to help me and recommended a plating they have referred to as Midnight Chrome. The price he quoted back in Dec/Jan was $250 a wheel which seemed pretty reasonable with a 3 week turn around time. He was suppose to send me some pictures of the midnight chrome but I never heard anything more from him and I never followed up as I didn't have a second set of rims to give him anyway.
As far as the wheel nuts go, I did find a set of black chrome on-line made by Gorilla that fit the Camaro, Acorn Bulge, Closed End, Black Chrome, 4PK, 12mm x 1.5 http://www.thunderracing.com/shop-by...d-Wheel-Locks/
cool thanks for all the help and info. a lot of research to look into over the next few months. thanks all!!
