Nah, chrome sucks in my opinion, why not try the colour of gunmetal, make it look extremely wet, that should get all the lines out nicely

On that same website they have "ghost chrome" which is an aluminum paint...I think that actually might look pretty cool.

Ever been blinded by a mirror in the sun. Now image that x 1,000 doing 70 mph on the highway. If it's for promotion cool, but otherwise it will likely kill someone.

So its already been done.
I suggest a very nice polished silver/gunmetal color. IMO, that would look much better than chrome.

Something like this...


LOL!! <-- randomly promoting my own rims.

-hS
Those are the gunmetal ones that you have on your car? Wow they really do change colors like you said.
