I know of 2 places in SoCAL and I hate to possibly shatter your dreams but I have a few questions. What kind of wheels? Also what is your budget? Reason I ask because I wanted to do the same and have my Brembos Neo Chromed, price was $1100 to Neo Chrome the outer halves of my Brembos and and powder the inner halves a blend able color. Wheel lips would be much more probably $2000 or so, so you definitely will have the ultimate set of wheels but only on a legit set ( Volk, Work, etc.. ) pm me if you need the shop info

That's not too bad for powder work, but neo chrome is a plating / dipping process much different

my Idea came after seeing JonJon's car from Club Lexus with his Endless Neo Chrome brakes, then I hit him up to get referred to his guy, he also did just the out halves

The plating process is quite expensive, and from what I recall it can take a very long time to complete. Don't quote me on it but apparently a lot of places get parts plated in that finish at one place, so to minimize the cost for everyone they do the plating in one large batch. You may drop your wheels off and may not get them back for six months, and it will still be very expensive. IMO, not worth it.

very true, It was a 3-4 month wait just for the Brembo's and still over $1100, I'm not going full show so decided against it. Anyone who wants to do this to a set of wheels make sure you have a garage to store your car in. Ask amateuRN about his maintenance on his wheels
