On my last set of chrome wheels, I cleaned them then used scotch brite on the inner barrels to roughen them up. Then brushed on rust oleum gloss black paint and had no problems with chipping or flaking. Much easier to keep clean and made the chrome face of the wheel pop much more. On my new Fikses, I am going to wire brush the the inner barrels and have them powder coated clear.

Those look good! I'm in the process of polishing my stockers using adams metal polishes #1 and #2. The barrels are getting treatment as well. I scrubbed them clean and I am going to paint the barrels with black caliper paint. It should look a whole lot better than before!

My SS is a fair weather only vehicle. So its parked from early November and wont see the streets for about 5 months. LPS works good but just cant use any wheel/tire cleaner without stripping it. Its easy on/off so no big deal.
