It's possible, but for the price youd be better off replacing the rim. Not anything youd really want to try and DIY either. Lotsa dangerous chemicals and whatnot.

It wont even stick to the chrome unless powdercoated, but even then it won't prevent flaking. Chrome on aluminum is just a shitty idea from what ive seen, tends to flake rather easily.

Added reply in a thread New pedals bearring? 12/25/2014 12:56 PM
This is common with unsealed pedals. They aren't worn in yet and theyre very tight. They will loosen up in a few weeks and then need to be tightened again.
