Chrome aging

Hey I’ve got a set of 16x10 wheels, I love everything about them the design and the look. Im looking at a set of 16x8 wheels of the same model but my problem is I can’t have flashy chrome wheels, I love the look of old beaten up chrome. I was wondering how I could age it, I’ve heard muriatic acid works well but will it look close enough to my current wheels which have a bit of corrosion? (Picture below) the reason I’m going down in width is for bigger tires this way they’ll balloon out more. Thanks!

All the pics you posted are of Aluminum wheels - not chromed. There's a difference.

If you want wheels with patina, buy used from a JY, or eBay, or FB Marketplace... They're cheap & common.
