    The paint won't adhere to the chrome. You have to strip all the chrome off via sandblasting or sodablasting or what have you.

    Or use a little sweat and elbow grease and sand them down really well before you paint. That's what I did with the chrom wheel I'm using for my spare.

    Was that really chrome plated before? Looks kind of just like polished aluminum.....
