Not sure what you mean by this. Were you looking at having them chromed? Or did you mean electro POLISHED?

If the latter, it only costs a few bucks - far less than the cost of the new chains being cut & drilled. It's well worth it too as the finish lasts WAY longer.

It also precludes crevice corrosion as there is no surface iron left to give it a path into the metal (as long as the electro surface lasts).
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
