Default The obvious

Just got a 2008 SLT Big horn 1500 with the "chrome" wheels? Are these what they look like? Plastic chrome on aluminum 20in. wheels? Everything is still stock. sorry about asking the obvious.

Yes. Plastic covers. There has been a lot of debate of this style that Dodge chose for the wheels. I personally wouldn't have been happy, but there are pros/cons to them.

So I see where the wheel balance weights are on the plastic chrome. does the chrome plastic come off the wheel.? Is it a two part assembly or is it bonded to be just one piece now? Thanks for any replies. What would the pros and cons be?

It is a two part assembly. They used some pretty strong adhesive on the covers to affix them to the wheel underneath.

I've seen the wheels under the covers...not pretty but they would paint up or powdercoat up pretty well with some basic prep.
