Chrome refinishing

On one of my wheels the chrome is starting to flake away. Where would the best place to go in the Hamilton area to get it refinished?

Well, for starters make sure they get triple plated. it cost a heck of alot more but that is the proper way to get stuff chromed otherwise you will see the grinding marks beneath the chrome and looks cheap. the other thing to note is that it rust more easily with single plating.

I think I've had 14 bmw's in 4 years.
2 IX's -sold and parts
2 325i 4 dr - sold
4 318is all white - sold and parts
1 87 325is red - parts
1 89 325i vert grey - parts
1 90 325is white - keepin
1 87 325i vert -red - keepin
latest addition 1 88-325is red - parts
latest addition 1 89-325i vert - white -fixin/sold
latest addition 1 92-318i vert - blue - parts
latest addition 1 87 325is blk - parts.

latest addition as of 2013-Gold 87-325is auto! it's a keeper!

That's for sure the way I would like to go but don't know anybody in the area that does it.

Kuntz Electroplating out of Kitchener is the best in the GTA. They can strip it down to bare metal and then refinish in chrome.
