Chromtec® Wheels

Expert engineering, program management, and advanced processes and innovative R&D place Lacks Wheel Trim Systems at the leading edge of innovation, from small, highly detailed components for exterior ornamentation up to full-size truck grilles and bumper trim.

At Lacks Trim Systems, we work hard to develop new products and processes that deliver unmatched quality and superior performance. Our revolutionary introduction of High Impact Plated Plastic (HIPP-140™) to the industry, for example, is now recognized worldwide for its exceptional impact, fatigue and temperature performance in critical decorative areas such as flexible grilles.

Lacks' innovation has continued with the development of Platinum™ Chrome, a proprietary electroplating process that provides a smooth, warm matte finish for a rich, polished appearance, and Spinelle™ Metal Finish, a multi-coat system that produces a true metal finish available in unlimited colors, glosses and textures. Selective Spinelle™ provides customers with the ability to feature multiple metal finishes on the same part, increasing the dramatic impact.

Our grilles typically feature multi-piece construction and often include emblems, fasteners and attachments. We produce grilles for vehicle of all sizes, from economy size cars to full-size trucks.

NEW! eVOLVE™
Hybrid Wheels

eVOLVE™ Hybrid Wheels deliver attractive, highly engineered composite wheels that decrease weight and optimize aerodynamics for increased vehicle MPGs*.

We've taken a very different approach to wheel construction with eVOLVE™ Hybrid Wheels. First, a high-performance backbone is optimized for handling, weight, strength and safety. Next, a design surface is created with one of the many proven metal finishes unique to Lacks Enterprises. Our proprietary process then combines these to create an extraordinarily strong yet lightweight, metal composite wheel that offers the ultimate in design flexibility and fuel efficiency.

Only Lacks has this patented, proprietary composite wheel technology. With eVOLVE™ Hybrid Wheels, you simultaneously upgrade your vehicle's style and MPGs*. See our eVOLVE™ Hybrid Wheels website for complete details and product testing videos.
