Default Wheel Skins

Have you guys seen or had any experience with these things?
They make them for the Express wheels and it's a Chrome plated ABS cover that snaps over your painted wheels to look just like the clad version.
At first I was like EEEEHHHHHHHHhhh but the more I think about it, it's not that different than the 'clad' wheels, and at anywhere from $50-100 a set on ebay I'm starting to think it might be worth a try.

The wheel skins only fit the exact design of your wheel. They are not universal by wheel size. They show a picture of what wheel you must have for them to fit. I am waiting for them to come out with a set for my 2013 17" painted wheels.

This is what I have now http://www.ebay.com/itm/DODGE-1500-F...aa0055&vxp=mtr

I have those exact rims as well, I think they'd look a lot nicer in Chrome! So what you are saying is they might come out with a chrome version that would fit right over my rims?

Yeah, they are made as an exact fit, that's why I was thinking of giving them a shot. They look good, and they cost 1/10th of what a new set of chrome 20's cost.

I had them on my2010, at first I thought it was a cheesy concept but once I installed them I fell in love. Matched the chrome bumpers perfect, in fact when i traded it on my 2013 the dealer thought they were factory stock. You cant tell they are a hub cap until you bend down & look at them from inside the spoke. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

I bought those off of eBay. They do not fit 2013 express wheels. They did give me a full refund.

They do not fit thew 2013 Express rims. Just sent a set back to CarId.
Was very disappointed. I had them on my 07 RAM and they looked and fit great.
