Chrome Wheel Exchange – Upgrade your rims with our chrome wheel exchange program
Are you ready to jump start your vehicle renovation with a set of custom chrome rims? Our chrome wheel exchange service is designed to get you the perfect set of new rims as quickly as possible, so you can get out of the garage and back in the driver’s seat. While a normal chrome plating process can take weeks between shipping, applying the layers of metals, polishing, and return shipping, our wheel trade in service can have you back on the road within hours of receiving your rims – zero downtime!
Many people these days choose to get custom chrome rims because they look sleek and grab attention. That said, there’s another more practical reason to opt for chrome: durability. A high quality chrome plating will make your wheels much more resistant to dirt, water, and all kinds of environmental factors that can cause long-term problems for traditional aluminum or steel rims. So if you want your vehicle to look great and perform great, consider a chrome wheel exchange, it’s a great solution to chrome rims and save you money.
With that in mind, our chrome wheel exchange program was created to give our customers a quick and easy way to upgrade their rims from anywhere in the US. However for this program to work, there’s a couple of things we need from you to make sure everything runs smoothly:
- We can only accept the exact original equipment manufacturer (OEM) rims as trade-ins, as we’ll be sending you OEM wheels for your vehicle make and model. This is a like-for-like exchange.
- Exchanged wheels need to be stock – unfortunately we cannot accept wheels that have already been chrome plated.
- Rims must be in good plate-able condition, with only minor cosmetic scuffs at most. If you’re unsure of what qualifies a cosmetic scratch, please send a picture to our support team for clarification, click here. We cannot accept high damaged, corroded, or out-of-round wheels.
- A security deposit that will be fully refunded once we receive your rims and ascertain everything looks good
Our Proven Chrome Exchange
Process in 6 Easy Step
Give us a call. We’ll walk you through locating the OEM part number (usually located on the back of your rims) to make sure you get the right wheels in your chrome wheel exchange. Take pictures of any scratches or scuffs on your current rims.
Place an order for the corresponding chrome or custom finished wheels. This step will include the security deposit mentioned above for your chrome wheel exchange.
We’ll get to work beginning your chrome wheel exchange, custom finishing the proper set of OEM rims to your specifications. The length of this process depends on the finish requested.
We’ll ship the completed custom finished rims to your address for you to install directly on your vehicle.
Package your old rims to send back for return shipping. Package wheels individually in corrugated cardboard boxes with some kind of padding to protect the rims.
Once we receive your old wheels from the chrome wheel exchange, we’ll perform our own inspection to make sure everything is in order before refunding the security deposit.
Total cost of a chrome exchange
Using our chrome wheel exchange service is also a cost-effective way to upgrade your vehicle. If your OEM rims are in good condition, you only have to pay for the cost of the chrome plating and shipping to and from your location. The cost of the chrome plating or other custom finish work is dependent on the make, model, and year of your vehicle (call +1-800-548-5795 for pricing).
If your wheels are excessively scratched or otherwise damaged, we’ll simply deduct the cost of repairs from the initial security deposit placed with the order. Again, if you’re not sure about the current condition of your rims our support staff will be happy to answer any questions you have and take a look at pictures before placing an order.

As mentioned above, we can only accept good condition stock OEM wheels and rims that are an exact match (same like and kind). This is to ensure a fair trade for the new rims we ship to you, so we can continue to offer this service for years to come.
Most of our customers are true car and truck enthusiasts who take excellent care of their vehicles and only use high quality parts. That said, every now and then someone will send us damaged rims or cheap replica rims in hopes of getting a new set of sleek chromed out rims in return. Don’t worry – as long as your wheels are in good condition you’ll receive a full refund as soon as we can inspect the rims you ship us back.
Anywhere from one to two years. This depends on the manufacturer of the wheels. Wheel are only guaranteed for the workmanship and materials of the wheel. The warranty does not cover damaging the wheels, such as running into a curb. Warranty does cover chipping, peeling and plating.
