However, if the chrome rims are severely damaged, they can really make a nice vehicle look bad, or are not even usable. When this happens, some individuals go purchase another set because of how difficult it can be to restore or how expensive and time consuming the whole process can be. The reason why chrome rims are so much tougher to restore than standard rims is because they are plated instead of painted.

Chrome rims are installed on top of the aluminum alloy wheel, most often with a zinc and copper plate in between the two dissimilar metals. Why a zinc and copper plate? Because dissimilar metals corrode when they are in contact with each other, and the zinc and copper plate placed in the middle enables the chrome to adhere to the aluminum instead of corrode.
