JoeBlow is an unknown quantity at this point

Yes i knew before I purchased. A salesman at a dealership told me about them, that's how I found out. I was already mentally committed to buying a ram, so it didn't stop me from buying the truck, but I must admit I was quite disappointed. IMO rims make a car, and often differentiate the cheaper models from the more expensive. These rims look good, but really they are crap. There is a reason they call them chrome clad, that is to keep most of us from realizing they are plastic. And the fact that other car companies r starting, or have been doing the same, doesn't make me feel any better. We paid a premium to have these rims, so it's not like its saving us any money to have plastic wheels. Just my 2 cents, but this is my one sticking point with the truck, and I don't like to sugar coat it and make excuses for it either. If I was that type, I might as well of bought the 6 cylinder and put hemi badges all over my truck.
