Hey guys I am looking into dressing the wheels over the winter. I need some help, I want to chrome them but i have been told that there is no one in Ontario that does good chroming. If anyone knows of a good company here can you please let me know? Also if I dont find a chrome shop I may just Paint them gloss black. What do you guys think I should do? :dontknow:

Chrome

Chrome all the way Fire....Find it hard to believe there is no good place to go here in ontario...im gonna chrome my stockers now that they are off and bare...not having any luck yet,but i have not looked that hard...will let you know if i find anyone....I think Rig is doing his with Simmons somewhere on his run....I think you need to slip them in his cab,along with a case of beer,and see if they can do a little round trip to Simmons and back,,,They have a good reputation for high quality work...:bigthumbsup:

I myself am going to powder coat mine so I'm a little impartial... LOVE the look of it cause it seems EVERYONE has chrome but very few go with a blacked out route.

Since your bike is black already that might be a bit much but if there was contrast color... that would look awesome. PLUS... powder coating is way less $$$ then chroming leaving you room to do some other mods... :dontknow:

I heard that he was thinking of stopping the rims. My wheels are from Simmons and he did a GREAT job on them. And you can NEVER go wrong chroming anything.

Rims

I might ask them what it would cost to tune up my polished wheels.
Hey Chris

I'll p.m you a guy for polishing really does good work on truck rims looking

for some work in the winter....:bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:

I probably will do a Simmons run this winter keep you posted. I would like

to get the hub and rims done. The gas cap and controls to Liquid we'll see

I'm looking into chroming also. I have been searching everywhere in southern ontario with no luck:mad:

If your looking to refinish, ie polish/paint I heard a lot of good things about Carcones in Aurora

http://carconeswheelrefinishing.com/pricing.htm

Rig keep me in the loop with your run to Simmons, I am interested to do the wheels, hub and generator cover.

I was also thinking of just riding down there this spring and getting new tires at the same time.

let me know
