Dodge and came through!
When I bought my 2008 Dodge Ram, the dealer had a 4" lift and Moto Metal Rims/Tires combo installed through 4WheelParts.Com of Jacksonville, Fl. Within weeks/months, we noticed our rims were corroding. Through service advisers, collegues and friends we were advised to use Mother's Polishing Compound and elbow grease, from there it should remove. It didn't work, only on the brake dust. So then we were advised to use steel wool. That did wonders at removing the brake dust, road grime....etc. But then it became overly apparent that the rims were corroding from under the chrome. Dodge directed me to 4WheelParts.Com as you have to go through them to get to Moto Metal, which I think is crap! Moto Metal has no direct number for customer service. After 3 weeks of unreturned calls from 4WheelParts.Com, I called this morning highly angered. I spoke to a gentleman named Don and he has new rims, of my choice (out of a selection), on order and I will have brand new NICE rims on my truck sometime in the first week of April! THANK YOU DODGE, 4WheelParts.Com and Don! I will keep everyone updated on the outcome.

Glad to hear that everything is working out. Those black rims will really look nice! :smiley_thumbs_up:

I think I'll be avoiding Moto Metal.

Post some pics up when you get the new rims on. I have been a fan of the moto metal wheels in chrome. Sucks to hear that about em.

I like those rims, I can't wait to see how they look!

Man those black wheels would look good on my black truck.

Those black rims do look fine, of course we want pix :) when you get them
I guess i'm lucky living where i do, there are at least 6 4 wheel parts dealerships within 50 miles of my home
