Understood, I meant that it seems like a waste to plastidip them when they are so nice looking, makes more sense to replace them (IMO) instead of covering them in black goo.

The good thing though is that the plastic goo comes off. It's actually quite amazing....if you get it started it just peels off with ease.

I quite like them. The "silver" wheels in my opinion don't really match the truck.

I really like the look of the Chrome Clad's on my 09. The first set were changed under Warranty due to Chrome peeling off within the first 12 months. Second set started peeling off within the next 12 months. Went back to local dealer who said Chrysler wont change something a second time under Warranty. He also told me it was due to weather. Spoke to Chrysler Canada who said its up to the individual Dealer. Took Truck to 2 Chrome plating shops who both said its very thin & poor quality work.Chrysler Canada acknowledged this fact as well.
Anyway I'm done with arguing the fact with the Dealer & just going for new Rim's & Tires in the Spring. Dealership by the way is Tower Chrysler in Calgary.

That sucks that you had such a problem, I have heard the cladding is easier to maintain than chrome. I know the chrome is prone to pitting.

Let's see some pics of the chrome clads especially with chrome bumpers!
