Yes, that's how they make them. Chrome plastic cladding over a steel wheel.

i believe they went cheap, but if you have warranty then you can get it replaced

In my opinion they are better. Aluminum and Chrome wheels corrode something terrible. Atleast with a steel wheel if they rust you can grind them right down to clean metal again. They look just as good and you don't have the headache of leaky wheels. I have never really noticed anything wrong with them. I'm a mechanic at a Chrysler dealer and we have had no complaints, they have been on the trucks since 03-04
