From what I see, all brands are going to plastic because chrome doesn't last long.
BTW, nice looking truck!
The biggest reason is actually for fuel economy. Aluminum painted wheels with plastic chrome cladding are WAYYYYY lighter than an actual chrome wheel. Chrome wheels with tires in a 20" application can weigh in excess of 80 lbs a corner. As it is, we are at about 40. Thats a savings of 160 lbs of weight overall that your truck ain't haulin' around, using extra fuel.

I would just plasti-dip them personally. ZERO prep beyond cleaning is needed and if you get tired of it, peel it off and your chrome wheel covers are intact (not sanded) underneath.
