Yes, you are correct and this is exactly how they are. Chrome clad certainly sounds much better than chrome plastic covered...don't you agree?CubeDog said:I picked up my 300C last wednesday and today I noticed something that kind of bothered me. I tapped on the wheels and there are obviously plastic covers over the spoked rims. Is this how it should be? Chrysler's website advertises the wheels as: "18 inch chrome-clad 9-spoke aluminum wheels"
