(trying desperately not to be rude but...)
What exactly are you doing that you are breaking spokes on your chrome
wheels every year???
My car has the original factory painted wires, I drive the car fairly
and I have never broken a wire. (Knock on wood).

If I bought new chrome wire wheels, barring an accident, I would expect
them to last
pretty much forever.  

What am I missing??
