Chromed OEM Denali Wheels - Helios Coatings

Sent my OEM Denali wheels to Helios Coatings in Canton Ohio to have them PVD chromed. Color is slightly darker than actual chrome plating but I'm very happy with the result & my truck finally looks like a Denali edition! They were great to deal with, the door to door turn around was only 14 days & my wheels were packaged very well for the return trip. They actually sent me a photo of the wheels before they were shipped back! I wish GMC had a Denali chrome wheel option but this is the next best thing.

Oh yeah! I like that a lot. They do indeed look very "Denali" IMO.

$965 including shipping....I should have been more specific; The PVD cost was $595, I arranged shipping via FedEx Freight & my cost both directions was $370 for a total price of $965

Hey bro, that's the exact look I'm going for. I have a chance to buy a set of denali rims for 250 and wanted to see what tires will fit. I'm also planning to put a 2" leveling kit at the same time. If u dont mind me asking, what's ur suspension setup ? I also see ur running 275/55. Do they run any ?

I did the same thing, same coating but with Detroit Wheel. It is not quite chrome but close. I did have one start to peel, I called them and they sent me another wheel and I returned the bad one. They paid for shipping and reimbursed me the fee to have it mounted and balanced.

That looks awesome.....
Kudos to you for bucking the blacked-out crowd and doing what you like.
Very nice job and makes the truck look sweet.

WOW!! That looks amazing! I just picked up a set of Denali wheels with 275/55's mounted on them and am thinking of selling the tires and going with stock size instead. But MAN I'm loving the chrome. I was thinking the stock finish is a little too dark for my taste but not a fan of the aftermarket choices so best option IMO. But yours have me drooling LOL

quick question, what did you do with your truck while you had no wheels? Did you have another vehicle to drive or does the company have an exchange program?

That is interesting since I live 30 min from there and could save the shipping.

Are you happy with the quality?

Any pics of your setup and was the price comparable to OP?

1STGMC - I installed the Rough Country 1" level kit, my diesel sits almost perfectly level. My local Discount Tire mounted a 275/55 R20 Cooper AT3 on the truck before I ordered the Conti's & there was no rubbing anywhere. The Conti 275/55R20's are actually wider than the Cooper's so I will have a slight rub on the frame & sway bar if I turn to full lock. I drove the truck for a week after the Conti's & I never turned to full lock. I installed the WeatherTech splash guards & I will need to modify them because they rub before full lock.

campermac - I sent in the wheels shortly after I purchased the truck & I still had my old truck to drive. I checked all over for someone offering an exchange set but I couldn't find anything. I believe I couldn't find an exchange set because everyone offers OEM wheel exchanges & GMC didn't offer a chrome Denali wheel for the Canyon.

I spoke to Greg at Helios Coatings today for quite some time and told him that the forum was going nuts over 2cosby's pics of his Denali with the chrome wheels. He is looking into a couple of things for me on possible exchange program if he can get his hands on some wheels.

If you are interested in getting your wheels PVD coated message me with your contact info and I will gladly forward it off to him for him to contact you.

The set I just picked up are not going on until spring time. If it were a good deal to send my set in and he could start anyone else with an exchange, as long as I had a set back by march/April.... I'd take one for the team. Lol

The set I just picked up came with like new 275/55 Falken Wild Peaks, although they look killer...I'm still stock ride height and thought I'd have to do full 2 inch lift so I was afraid of rubbing and losing MPG. Have you noticed a drastic loss in MPG? Damn it your truck is exactly what mine would look like, and I'm loving your setup!

While I much prefer the factory OEM styling of the Denali wheel, I won't knock other peoples taste. Can you post a pick of the Denali wheel you have with the Falkens mounted? The few Denali's I've seen with aggressive tires aren't looking right, maybe the Wild Peaks look OK...
