I found this out on my wifes Nitro when I washed it for the first time and I was really upset at the time, but I soon got over it. So I wasn't shocked when I saw them on my truck, the only problem I have with them is when I go down some back roads, the dirt gets pulled underneath the plastic and when I wash it, it runs out and dries overnight.

I have the Chrome Clad wheels and they were starting to look black in the small curves. I took mine into the dealer and showed the advisor. He took pics and sent into Chrysler. Last week I went in and they put 4 brand new Chrome rims on my RAM. NO CHARGE,lol. It looks so shiny,lol
I have to say they have treated very good, both Chrysler and my dealer.

They are just covers most companies use them now a days. I don't mind the covers they are cheaper to fix if you curb rash one than a real chrome wheel. Is kinda cheap though. I got the idea when I noticed the chrome wheel upgrade was only $400 on a new Ram.

At least if you scrape one up all you have to do is buy a new chrome cap rather than a whole rim.

You can't get a replacement.You have to buy a new wheel as far as i know.The Cladding is bonded to the rim & very hard to get off. Good luck & let us know how you go on....
