Hello,
There is a pretty big difference between the two finishes.

It will be very noticeable.

Thank you,

How much of a difference in looks is there between the factory satin graphite wheel and the black chrome wheel?

I really really want black chrome but not the down time to sit my car on jack stands waiting. Any options such as you sending the wheels I send back my cores. I also would like tinted tails. PM me if you choose. I want the wheels today.

Hello,
Yes, that is why we offer the core exchange program. We will send you the new wheels already finished and you send us yours back as a core. As for the tail lamps, you would need to call in for those as we do not have a core exchange program for them at this time.

We have black in stock now. If you want the Black Chrome finish we would need about two weeks to have those finished and shipped to you from the time you place your order.

Thank you,

Dr. Design

It didn't affect mine. I hit a mother of a pothole a few weeks ago and popped a tire. The wheel, though the outer rim had a gouge in it from the pothole, held up just fine. D3 checked out its integrity and is in the process of refinishing it.

Their black chrome process isn't like a conventional chroming process; it's more like a hybrid powder-coating/vapor deposition process, so even if you gouge it down to the base metal, it will not corrode like a conventional chrome-plated wheel would. The coating is surprisingly thick and hence, durable.

I am torn between the black chrome and the satin black that is on the Forgeline rim.
James: Did you guys do the satin - matt black finish on the Forgeline rim, or is that from Forgeline with the finish already applied?

who is doing your black chrome? Is it Jerome by chance? Looks just like how he did my wheels.
