Alex,
Rims must be soaked in acid then bead blasted, Just had set done in Hayward, Ca. 75.00 per wheel w/o primer & paint.

every time I had to have chrome remove I just sent it to the chrome shop .
the shipping have cost more then what the shop would charge us to remove the chrome .
the acid will only take the chrome off not any of the other metals the chrome shops use under the chrome .
that has to be sand blasted ! on aluminum the grit of the blasting media will ruff up the aluminum so much you will be hating life sanding the aluminum smooth again for the new finish you want to put on the wheels .
if you plan on buffing the aluminum at all for the shinny buffed aluminum look acid and blasting is not what you would want to do .
