I think those look as good if not better than the covers that came on my truck. Maybe I should have gotten the other wheels and bought these covers. Would have saved myself 300 bucks. Oh that's right, I didn't realize when I bought the truck it even had plastic fricken covers on my wheels to begin with!

So glad I came across this post! I came real close to trading up my allow wheels at the dealer for Laramie chrome clad but changed my mind last minute. Just couldn't wrap my mind around spending $400 for chrome cap on steel wheels... This is a much better option.

I have a set and they look great. Got them used for 30 bucks on ebay. The only problem is they rattled. I just got some 3M two sided tape and put it on the foam cushions on the inside of the cover then popped them on and pushed those areas. Problem solved and they look great too.

Don't forget, we also got wider tires with the $400 option.
From what I see, all brands are going to plastic because chrome doesn't last long.
BTW, nice looking truck!

Hey, pretty cool !!! Now the question I have is can they be painted black for those of us with the no chrome "blacked out" look ??? It sure would be cheaper than a set of black wheels if your on a budget like me. Anyone done this?? Seems like if properly prepped, sprayed with black and clear, they could be popped right on. Badah Bing Badah Boom. Comments ? Pics ???????
