Default Under the chrome clad 20's (Pic's)

Some one recently posted a De-cladded 4G Sport Chrome Clad 20"
(to be used as a spare, and the bore hole was restricted by the plastic so he removed it to get the spare tire winch "T" to fit through)



it's not all that hideous looking underneath and can be polished up easily by removing the adhesive, there was another post cleaning pic, but I cant find the thread now.



Not that I could be bothered, but there is even an Ebay exchange that will de-clad and Chrome them for $800 (for set of 4)

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-20-Dodge-...item43a9c83145



My CC's started cracking and peeling/rusting after one winter, even though I washed them weekly...
Warranty claim denied!

WARNING!!! New owners with The Sport CC's should Watch these corners Carefully! if you live in an harsh Winter climate area that puts salt or chemicals on the roads to melt the ice!



They are getting Plasti Dip'd Black this Winter
If I knew the CC quality was so Poor I would have PD's them last Fall and just peeled it off again in the Spring

Yes you can do that with Plasti-Dip, its not really paint...just a vinyl rubber spray on coating that requires no pre prep other than an alcohol wipe.



I'll keep my rusted 20's as my Winter set with my 305/50R20 Terra Grapplers mounted.

Next Spring (with any luck) I'll be running Nitto NT420S for Summer tires on 22" R/T Alcoa's

the ebay listing to chrome them looks interesting. 22" R/T Alcoa's would look great on your truck BRH.

Only place I have got it from is Lowes so far. But I would think that Home Depot or any large Hardware store would have it.

Not in Canada,

Since that's where Rayne is from,
there's no use going to Lowes or Home Depot...been there done that.

Only Home Hardware in Canada for PD.
