Traditional FIVE Plate Black Chrome Plating

Black Chrome Plating is the same process as Chrome Plating. The only difference comes with the tinting to obtain the smoke coloring. Black Chrome can take a little longer than traditional chrome plating.

Don’t take our word for it, see what our customers are saying:

“My Wheel Doctor is absolutely, positively the best in the business! I had extensive curb damage on a 2008 Mercedes SL 550 chrome custom wheel. My Wheel Doctor repaired and replated the wheel to standards above and beyond my expectations. The wheel looked better than the other three on my vehicle. I was so impressed with the work My Wheel Doctor performed on my Mercedes wheel that it made me give my Toyota Tundra pickup truck a facelift by chrome plating 4 custom Enkei wheels. My Wheel Doctor again exceeded the standard by providing a high quality product backed by excellent customer service. Thank you for a job well done!!!”Tamara H. Houston TX.
