Chrome bullitts finish peeling...

I have chrome bullitts and the inner bead was chromed... A 2-3" section is now bare metal and it leaks air. Is there any way to solve this? Or will the wheel need rechromed?

Have the tire dismounted at a tire shop. They can use a wire wheel to ground down the chrome smooth, then use a black rubber sealant to seal the bead. That stops 99% of all bead leaks.

Should last for a long time. They seal around the whole bead not just the spot peeling.
