That's correct, you want to strip the factory silver coating off and have them polished. You might get a better response in the Garage Forum. Chrome is easier to clean and maintain though.

when you just polish the metal you are going to have it more exposed to rust and the elements where chrome seals all that in. I think you should get black chrome, it looks amazing.

I can powder coat them to a near chrome not as bligy but shinier than polished wheels and can do everything for 300.00 and powder coating is easier to clean and alot more durable. pm me if you want more info.
