Black 10 spoke rims - chrome dipped?

I was wondering if anyone has some pictures of the black 10 spoke rims dipped in chrome?

I would prefer to see them on a yellow ZL1.

I'm planning to have the stock black 10 spokes, dipped in chrome and just wondering if anyone has done this already and how do you like it?

What about stripping, polishing and clear-coating them.

A guy at the Carlisle show did that. They looked much better than the wider 5 spoke from the factory.

Not a fan of the chrome. I think the 10 spokes look awesome the way they are-in black. Very sporty/aggressive look. What about polished:

Polished looks good as well. Now I just need to see them on a yellow ZL1. :-)
