I would like my wheel chromed out. just saying. So i have to remove the black paint, polish aluminum, chrome spokes and find a chrome rim. Will jasco paint remover do it?
 
Chrome plating likely to trap the heat within the hub motor, make it less efficient, more prone to failure.
 
The physics term for why black is preferred is "black body radiation".
Simply put, black objects are better about emitting Infrared radiation (heat), than other colors, or silver.
