As much as I like B&W I alway thought color did chrome more justice. And the dash of red adds to it as well.

Here is my take I beefed up the contrast by adding a dupe layer set on "overlay" at about 50% opacity. Then used a Hue and satration layer to decrease the satraion a little everywhere but the red. Then sharpened just a tad.

As my 14 year old son pionted out a chrome wheel should be really shiny LOL

TJ - Nice enhancements and that's the look that I was hoping someone would post. Maybe Hawaii should send this to the manufacturer? Perhaps there's a free wheel in it for him if it's used on their next brochure...
