I knew they were plastic, what i did'nt know was the you cant just buy the plastic inserts you've got to buy the whole wheel which i got a quote for today from one of our dealers, approx $900 per wheel i think i'l stick to looking for a set of the chrome Diamo 17" karat which are as rare hens teeth, every company that has them up for sale on there site's dont have them and have no order date (why advertise them then?????)

I find they look great, one of the reasons I bought my truck was because of the look of these rims. Then again I don't like the new wave look, black out everything.

Salesman actually pointed out the fake chrome, ended up with the polished aluminum. Gonna sand em down,prime and paint em matte black in the next couple weeks anyways.

I had a Dodge Caliber before my Ram- kinda liked the little to no maintenence of the idea.

I just put KMC 680s on the truck and gave my old wheels to a friend for his truck.

Couldn't be happier with that decision.

Anyone have any experience using a Hi Lift jack and a lift mates LM100 with the chrome clad wheels? I'll be off road and I'm concerned with cracking the cover if I need to lift the truck using the wheel. Let me know what you think.
