My brother in law just bought a new high end GMC pickup with 20" wheels.
Guess what? They're plastic covers!

I like mine and I think they will hold up much better than chromed aluminum. After 7 yrs on my 03 they looked like day one.

I hate the plastic wheels also. They look good, but I hate knowing that they are plastic. That would be fine if this was the $20K model, but to buy a truck with a $45k sticker price, just to get glued on hubcaps, is a shame. Ram needs to come up with some more wheel options.
P.S. I have a friend who just bought a fully loaded Tundra crew. He commented that he liked my wheels, but I was too embarrassed to tell him they were plastic.

I like my stock plastic 20" wheels. They look great with a coat of wax on them! At least they wont rust or pit.

Plastic or not, I think they look good. I have no problem telling anyone that I have chrome plastic covers. They seem to handle the winter better then most of the fancy rims I've owned over the years.

If your interested in what's under the plastic, check out this thread - http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=92536

There's a write-up on the 2010 forum, "chrome clad wheels", with some excellent photos, before and after removing the cladding. I know what I am doing after the cladding goes for s**t, it involves a little elbow grease and a polisher.
