$0.02, I think you have to get them sand blasted. Unless you have a sandblaster it might be cheeper to buy white ones and just paint them. I have white spoke wagon wheels and I don't think it's feasable to have them blasted. You might try checking out a street rod bbs, I think there is a monochromatic paint scheme that some rodders like where they paint everything, including bumpers that were once chrome. Good Luck.

Sand blasting is the only way I know to make paint stay on chrome and as was said it's usually "fairly" expensive unless you know someone. White wagons are pretty cheap these days. I did see a tech tip to help keep them from rusting down in the crack where they always do. After you get them cleaned up (or new) and primered run a bead of silicone in the groove all the way around. Seemed to work for me.
