It would be cheaper to buy new rims.

Chrome is not just dipped, sorry.
First the rims have to be stripped. Then there is the nickel....Polishing....There is so much labor in plating decorative chrome it's not funny. It is so controlled by the EPA and OSHA that very few shops even do it.
The quality of workmanship is gone BUT if you do find a good chrome plater be sure to let me know

They are chrome now? On steel or aluminum? New or old they would stil have to be stripped first. I work in the industry, we just dont plate chrome, sorry.

$125 ea sounds about right.
