For a complex wheel like that..Id just take it to the chroming company as is.. and get them to do any prep work. You wouldnt want to put a hole through your aluminum wheels.

Yeah leave it alone. Anywhere that does that will probably prep it anyway.

If getting things dipped in chrome was easy and cheap youd see a lot more of it.. Who knows maybe you'll get lucky.
