Are you using v-brakes or discs? Proper chrome will have a braking surface like greased lino.

could get pretty much any rim powder coated in " chrome" or "polished aluminium" colour. not real chrome but it looks mighty close if done properly and will be way better lasting

I am building a street bike with v brakes. i was wanting chrome rims similar to the ones that ever bmxer that runs rim brakes have except in 26inch. I think that chrome is harder wearing and provide a better surface for the pads. Any ideas

Oh i get it nice one because like they like sell chrome rims for cars aye, funny

youd think that but as the other person said its like on bmx rims. like bare skin falling on a very polished wooden floor, unfortunetly that doesnt feel like greased lino.

It will just be polished alluminium, not chrome as it is vary soft and heavy(not what you want in a rim).

here are some pics of some 24" MTX wheels in chrome/polished. I know this guy is running a disc but they look like they have a brake surface on them.
