what do you consider not cheap?
I was once quoted about $150 per wheel to chrome them.
That included refinishing the wheel before dipping as well.

I can't remember which one it was but here's the 3 numbers i have from cards in my wallet

Illustrious Illusions - 647-221-5781 (Marvin or Russell)
GT Auto Work - 416-750-8499 (Tony or Floyd)
Performance Worx INC. - 416-537-2279

I'm pretty sure it was the first one. That guy towed my car a couple times and he was really cool. He designs lowriders and chromes out the entire engine n stuff so he's pretty knowledgable.

Really? I'll call up Russell sometime and ask him again.
I find it hard to believe that nobody can chrome things in ontario.
