yeah, about 10 pounds per wheel. but if you dont care then.... bike wheels around here cost $400 each to get chromed. so i would figure about that much for car wheels.

Very cool. Now try it on the real version of the SRT in another color if possible.

It's my first attempt at chrome so it might look like I lost control of the spray can. :lol: :lol:

You're right, now that I look at it, that tint is way too dark. I guess tomorrow night will be the re-do.

Only problem is I can't ship my rims to California. I'd be carless for as long as it took. Otherwise it sounds like a good idea. You'll have to post some pics when you have it done.
