Agree with wcc. Personally, as I'm a performance-minded guy, chroming a set of performance rims (particularly Fuchs) would decrease the value dramatically. As in, I'd cross you off my list of potential sellers and move onto someone else. Polishing would be the acceptable way to get that shiny finish, instead.

At the same time, there are certainly a lot of people out there--even amongst 930/911 owners--who wouldn't care that those wheels are chromed, and might actually prefer that blingy look. They wouldn't view the chroming as any sort of detraction from the originality of the wheelset. Heck, your perfect chrome job would save them the trouble of doing that, themselves.

Look on the back of the wheel petals for some sort of serial number or stylized foxhead logo. Take a pic and report back to us.
