How to Choose the Best Chrome for Your Car

TiresChrome wheels are perfect for you if you have to drive through the elements. They are anti-corrosive, which means that they are free from being rusty. Moreover, they can enhance the look of any vehicle. More specifically, they have the ability to make your old car look pretty cool! But, before you purchase them, you need to understand which type of chrome wheel is perfect for your car.

This article will help you choose the best chrome for your car.

Types of Chrome Wheels

In order to understand which chrome wheel will be perfect for your car, you need to have a clear idea of the different types of chrome wheels. Basically, there are two types of chrome wheels. The first one is the Standard Chrome Plated wheel, while the second one is the PVD Chrome wheel.

The Standard Chrome Plated wheel is the typical shiny wheel that you have noticed in various custom cars. As the name suggests, the wheel is being plated with chrome before being plated with Nickel.

The second type of wheel is “PVD”, which stands for Physical Vapor Deposition. It is a powder coated wheel, which is less shiny than the Standard Chrome Plated wheel.

Which One You Should Choose?

The Triple Chrome plated wheel adds a shine to your car. We use state-of-the-art technology, proven methodology, and the best-performing, most environmentally-focused chroming facility.  From our semi-bright and particle nickels (the most expensive part of chrome plating), to our special anodes that allow chrome to get into all nooks and crannies of the wheel, we spend on average 20-30% more to chrome plate a wheel than just about anyone else out there. That's a difference you can see, and as they say, "seeing is believing."

The PVD chrome wheel is lighter than the Triple Chrome Plated wheel, which assists in reducing the rotating mass. PVD also helps against corrosion due to salt from the ocean or salted roads in the winter months. So, if you are living in wet regions or drive through conditions that are rough on your car PVD would be a great choice. Moreover, it can be used in all types of weather throughout the whole year. It doesn’t look as shiny as its counterpart, but that can enhance the look of your car.

If you are looking to enhance the look of your car, then go for the Triple Chrome Plated wheel. But if you are looking to purchase a high performance wheel that can be used in any type of weather, try the PVD Chrome Wheel. If you have any questions, you can always call us and we’ll help you find the right chrome for your car!
