You might have a hard time getting your asking price for the condition the wheels are in. Removing chrome is expensive.

Thanks for the feedback. I have a few quotes from local platers that will strip if they don't sell. Not entirely expensive, I just am not in a position to invest too much into these right now. We'll see in 20 minutes!

I had a set of 16" lorinser LO stripped once. It was $300 for the set and I wasn't entirely thrilled with the results. I think you can only hope for good results if the chrome is flawless. Flaking and peeling and pitting is a sign of aluminum damaged under that chrome. So even after stripping, you may be up for a project. For me just getting to the stripping facility was a hassle, four hours of driving total with 1-hour each way. Hopefully whoever buys these has a better angle on it than I did.

I'm still holding on to a set of 16"s of this type wheel that were chromed.
I just about got these wheels for nothing, or I wouldn't have even taken them.

The best price I could find from a chrome stripper that does wheels was $600 for the set, and he warned me about pitting under the chrome.
He said he wouldn't bother as the overall cost for the final project would be more than the wheels were worth.

I never got this chrome thing on wheels, how to ruin a rare set of wheels and look gaudy at the same time.

Without the chrome they probably would have sold at asking price in a heartbeat.

PS: I just noticed that the seller has been on BW a long time, with a lot of post activity.
Seeing that I just edited out a bunch of stuff I had written, I'd bet he already knows what the project costs to restore these wheels are.

Not to take either sides, I hope the seller finds a buyer at a price both can feel comfortable with.
