It looks like there are several California wheel dealers on eBay selling chromed OEM Ridgeline wheels. You can buy a set of 4 outright for about $800 plus shipping, or $450 with a core trade (ship your OEM wheels back to them in trade when you get the chrome ones from them) Has anyone had any experience with these?
i asked the same question awhile ago but i don't think alot of people have.
i was hoping to get some feedback. i will probably buy a set later this month and see how it goes

I've also been watching those chromed wheels. If anyone decides to buy from eBay, please post your thoughts...

I have had a pretty good experience with wheel chromers from California. At the Acura dealership that i work at we send out alot of stock TL, RL, and MDX wheels for chroming. I believe we use California Chrome Wheels, they do a really decent job for the price. The only complaint that I really have about chroming factory wheels is that the chrome sometimes makes it have to install the tpms tire valves ( I'm only complaining about this because I do alot of the wheels there) and the center caps are alittle bit harder to put in. but thorse are relativly easy problems to fix. Also another thing about the chrome is i've noticed that if you have one wheel replaced due to curb damage or any onther reason to replace one is that the wheel doest quite match with the others. I'm guessing that they do the wheels in batches of four and the other batches arent all alike. I know that the place we use will do either black chrome or regular chrome.

I have had chrome wheels from ebay now for about a year and I love them. I felt that the original wheels were too plain and the Honda chrome five spoke wheels looked like the Cragar S/S wheels I had on my Roadrunner. I like the six spoke wheel as it fits well with the looks of the Ridgeline, it just needed a little kick. So I went for the ebay wheels. I had them balanced with the weights on the inside only and the TPS is not chrome. I have attached some pics ( I think...) and hope you enjoy them.
