Almond 04 is on a distinguished road

Also If you get your chrome wheels powder coated be sure to have the chrome plating chemicaly stripped by a plating shop before blasting and powder coating.
Powder or any type of paint does not like to stick to chrome. Very poor adshion of paint over chrome.
Stripping of chrome to the Nickel plating underneath is the way to go. If they are alu wheels be sure NOT to have them sandblasted. It is way to course and will more likely than not cause the nickel to lift and possibly peel.
Try to get them Gass beaded. It is less abrasive and leaves a smoother finish. Sand blasting is good for rusty pitted steel.
All places are different. The coater we use at work typicaly charges 50- 75 per wheel inc blasting
