Default Take Chrome Off BBS Wheels???

I have a STi with chrome wheels because the previous owner apparently chromed out the factory BBS wheels. I personally don't like the look.

Does anyone know if it's possible to take off the chrome either by DIY or a local shop?

Or would it be easier to buy a new set of wheels and selling these? That's an option I'd entertain.

chrome bbs? lol. you should post pictures, i'm curious as to what that looks like.

they'd need to be acid dipped and washed. call around to your local sand blaster/wheel repair place and see if they know anyone local.
