    The chrome on my tires is starting to get jacked up. Its kinda like there is a clear cover on the chrom and its feeling off or pitting? IDK ill try and get some pics up in a little while.
    Has anyone else had this problem? Im thinking about maybe just powder coating them black

    They usually don't coat chrome wheels. They look like polished wheels with the clearcoat that's coming off.

    That is the clear coat peeling. The lip of that wheel is a machined finish. Good luck painting as I am going through the same thing this weekend on a set of peeling wheels I have. I'm having mine lightly sandblasted(if there is such a thing) by a friend with a machine shop. They are getting powder coated black for final finish. Good luck
