Default Stock 16" chrome wheels, Help!

Besides turning them upside down and making a small barbecue pit out of them, what can be done to recycle them? I'm thinking maybe sandblasting the chrome off and repainting. Any ideas where to go with this, besides the obvious and funny stuff!


I really don't need them laying around my garage not being used.. If I just keep them in my garage, all that's going to happen is be thrown out eventually.. What to do... What to do!!


Here's what they look like and the chrome chipping away!

Unless you plan to use them, I dont think its worth your time. If you want recycle them, look to give them to someone else who'll use them and let them burn the elbow grease.

Probably no worth a whole lot like that. I would blast what you can prime and paint. Then sell.
