Default Chrome flaking off chrom clad rims...

Just as the title says...the chrome is flaking off of my clad rims.. Needles to say I'm not to happy about it. The dealer said they need to get some pictures and send them to Chrysler. I have been through this before with my 08 Ram so I will make them replace all of the rims, royal pita!!
I will let all of you know how I make out.

Default Chrome Clad Rims

When I found out that the supposed chrome rims on the Ram trucks were just a plastic covering over an aluminum rim I was underwhelmed to say the least. It is just as well they were steel rims with plastic hubcaps. At least you can change and/or repair the hubcaps. What was Dodge thinking - or not thinking. I would venture to say that there have been many people who have purchased trucks with these rim options who probably were not even aware they were glorified plastic hubcaps. That would make an interesting poll in itself.

Keep us posted on what happens.

Steve.

Thanks for the pics. Some serious damage on them for sure. I tried to get aluminum alloy wheels instead of these chrome clads before I took deliver however they were unable to accomodate me. I'm planning on swapping these out in a couple of years. Hope mine don't end up like yours, that was my fear. Keep us posted on your progress with the dealer.

Sadly all the manufacturers are putting these P.O.S. "chrome" wheels on their vehicles unless you order it otherwise.

If I were to pick anything on my truck I dislike, I would say I DETEST the wheels. They'll be changed when I need new tires unless I REALLY get fed up looking at them and change the tires early as an excuse.

I've had good luck with these rims, my 03 did not have this issue's and my 08 so far hasn't with 65K on it. I guess I should knock on wood. One thing too we don't get the winters here were there is months of salt on the roads.
