Wow! Never heard of that happening. Might have been a fluke. The chrome on mine on the innards was almost the same quality and definitely nearly as thick as on the face.
Anyhow, I still think it's worth it. I'd rather have ok quality chrome than that hideous gray primer type paint that gets stained...not to mention difficult to clean.
Watch out when the tire shops scratch the hell out of that gray paint when they pry off the old weights with a sharp screwdriver. Talk about ugly...
Hmmmm... might be worth trying in one or two spokes on a couple of wheels to start? Or, go big or go home?!
