I have these wheels and they are an embarrassment.
I have a huge scratch on one of mine.
If it was real chrome there would have been little damage.
No wonder Chrysler is in the crapper.
Any tips on repairing the scratch?
Mine is a 2005 and they still look fantastic. Here in New England-real chrome is a pita to take care of cause they constantly need cleaning and protection otherwise the road salt destroys them. Chrome clad wheels are easier and more resiliant-I will never buy another chrome wheel again.

Too bad you're not closer gary, did you ever wheel with that set of wheels/tires?
I wheeled 1 day with them when the Jeep was stock, trust me, they look EXCELLENT. I can even ship them if you have a Fedex or UPS account, hell I think $1500 would ship them, but not 100% sure. I bought my black Viper from Woodhouse in Blair, Nebraska right over the phone and they shipped it here-terrific folks!

If a conservative is down-and-out, they think about how to better their situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of them.
I have inspected mine pretty closely and I couldn't find any tabs holding the plastic to the alum wheel, on the contrary I can clearly see what looks like polyurethane foam all around the alum, between the plastic when I look at the wheel when its off. Pretty sure the factory wheels on my 05' are glued on with some kind of glue. I would love to see Jeepers photos of that whole process.

Chrome clad rims should all be recalled. Mine have the "cheap aluminum foil" that covers the "plastic (ffs)" peeling off. I have 35k miles on them. I will never let anyone I know buy a vehicle with plastic wheel covers unless I hate them. I replaced them with Rubicon rims.
