Special Edition Vehicles - Firehawk wheels
04-04-2011, 11:19 PM
What up guys. I know this is probably a longshot, but I'm wondering if anyone is down to trade a set of (my) painted Firehawk wheels (02, 17") for a set of chrome ones. Hopefully there are some guys out there that bought aftermarket wheels and have the chrome stock ones sitting around. Mine are a 9/10 with some minor curb rash on a couple of the wheels. Nothing's wrong with them I just like the look of the chrome ones better. I can add $$ obviously to make the trade worth while. Thanks

Or take yours to a local chrome plate shop & have them plated yourself.
They'd probably hold up better in the long run, as the chrome wheels are notorius for pitting & peeling, expecially in the barrels.
Where ya located? Maybe someone can recommend a plate shop.

Thanks for all the help guys. I'm in Long Island if anyone can reccomend a place, I never thought of having them just chrome plated. Wonder how expensive it would be.

These are really hard to come by. They are probably my favorite wheels. 2 of mine leak around the valve stem holes. I've been looking for new ones for a few years. I wish someone like oewheels would make some replicas!!
