It is amazing how many people buy these vehicles and are caught off guard when they find out that the they are only glorified plastic hubcaps on the rims.
Please see the attached link. So far it is about 50-50 in polling

I recently purchsed my truck and too was completely fooled until the first time I washed the truck. I couldn't believe I was looking at 20" plastic hubcaps on my truck!!!

With that being said, I also noticed a few cracks in these plastic wheels covers around the center and lug nut areas so this made me even more furious. Are these wheels covered under warrenty? Have people been suscessful in getting their dealer or dodge to replace damaged wheels. These cracks are not from any user error or road rash, they are in the middle of the wheel and with 25k, the wheels to my knowledge have never been off the truck. I am really hoping I can get these replaced under warrenty as this is rediculous for a year old truck. Let me know what others have done, thanks!

I was also shocked to find out i had plastic hubcaps.I found a set of 20 inch 5 spoke wheels from 08 ram. I had them sand blasted, powder coated, and clear coated,bought new tires. the plastic ones are in the barn so when i sell truck i can put the originals back on. buy the way the spare is a 17 inch temporary duty tire. i bought a 20 inch spare wheel from an 08 and put on same tire.

I completely agree with you itobiuslee. I have an 09 that’s loaded with all kind of nice options. Rearview camera, heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, four wheel drive, and so on. The truck wasn’t the low cost model but it came with those plastic wheels. At first it didn’t bother me that much until it was time for new tires. It was at that time I found out one was cast incorrectly making it nearly impossible to balance. I’m so disappointed that Dodge would put such a poor quality wheel on their truck. When I think of how much that pickup cost me and how cheap those wheel are I just makes me mad. So the next time I buy tires I will also be buying new rims or a new pickup with wheels made out of metal not plastic.
