Step 1: Preperation
Step 2: Remove Chrome
Now place the rims with a coat of foamed up oven cleaner in a Ziploc bag and close it tightly to insure all the chrome is dissolved, leave the rims in the bag overnight, but If you find they are finished earlier take them out. When they are done wash them off with warm water. The rims should now be a white or yellowish color. You are now ready to move on to dyeing the rims.
Note: These ones are happen to be black because of the nylon used. Most won't be.
