LOL! I had the same reaction when I discovered they were just plastic covers. I thought, "cool, I've got me some chrome 20's" NOT!
But, what are you going to do? They do everything they can to cut costs. The average Jo Blow has no clue it's just plastic. You've got to admit, for plastic covers, they look pretty dang good (at least I think they do).
I'm sure they come off. I'm also sure that it looks like complete a$$ underneath them.
Mine are staying. Others may disagree.

Keep an eye out on the for sale section on here. I have seen quite a few sets of wheels for sale there, some stock and some aftermarket.

Default Too much plastic?

I was disappointed too when I noticed they were plastic,...but heck, for most of us, even that big macho looking grill is plastic as well isn't it?
