Tracking your wheel
To make sure that you receive the exact same wheel back when plating your wheels, we specially mark the wheel for identification throughout the entire plating process. Each wheel is engraved with a unique number, known as a C# (Customer Identification Number).
All C#s are marked in an inconspicuous place on the wheel, which will not be visible once the tire is installed. This ensures continuous, exact, progressive status of your wheels during our processing. Upon completion, if we have multiple wheels with the same number, . Or if you have wheels that we are not familiar with (aftermarket, custom wheels, etc), this ensures that you receive the exact same wheels back.
Our state of the art UPS shipping system links directly into the UPS supply chain database. This allows us to track incoming shipments, as well as tracking outgoing shipments that we have already processed. We are able to constantly communicate within our system, to follow and track customers packages throughout the total freighting system within the United States.
How we package "Wheel & Tire Packages"
For automotive wheels that are shipped with tires mounted and balanced, at CalChrome we use our custom boxes along with a proprietary injected foam molding technique that ensures no damage to the face of your new wheel. This custom foam molding technique was developed by and is available exclusively at CalChrome.
How we package wheels
For automotive wheels that are 19 inches and larger, we utilize a proprietary foam injected wheel cell technique which provides supreme protection not only for the face of the wheel, but also the front and back lip. The foam used in the molds suspends the wheel in a non-compressive protective barrier that has been tested by being dropped from 10 feet! This custom foam molding technique was developed by and is available exclusively at CalChrome!
