OK I just had my rims chromed about a month or so ago. I went to wash the bike today and it flaked off the front rime. I know "What you are thinking what the hell where you using?" It was just a garden hose with a spray attachment! I'll deal with the shop that sent my rims to be chromed but in the mean time do any of you have any suggestions as to chrome front rim that has lasted you a while and actually looks good with a chrome stock rear. (I'll change that one over the summer.) Any pictures or advice would be greatly appreciated. Also any advice on how to keep the rip or what ever it is from spreading until I have time to change the rim would help.
