Looking for 5-Slot chrome steel wheels?

Hey, A friend of mine is restoring a mid 70's Dodge Lil red expess truck, they came with 5 slot chrome steel wheels and his are rust pitted. I know Superior wheel sold the exact same design years ago and thought there were others. Is anyone producing this wheel again? Or does anyone have a rechromer they use that's good and reasonable? Bob

Rechromers - if they are good then they are not reasonable and if they are resonable they are not good. You get what you pay for when you have parts rechromed.

Yeah, I know but sometimes you don't get what you paid for. I've seen $400 spent on a small chrome bumper and the quality was crap. And the bumper went to the chromers in NOS condition. So what would a reasonable charge be for a quality rechrome on a wheel of this style? Anybody have experiences with rechroming wheels? Where was it done?
