I don't recommend chrome wheels, as the chrome will flake
off as well as rust where they meet the tires and cause
slow leaks
I would recomment you go with alloys

Hang on guys. Not all chrome wheels are bad. Had mine on since 2003 and they are perfect. I didn't do anything extra to keep them that way except keep them clean. No rust or chipping anywhere.

Lou31747; check under the "For Sale" section" of this forum for someone selling the GT chrome wheels. Just make sure to check them out, or have someone check them out for you, before you buy.

OK here we go again.

Aluminum that has been chrome plated will peel at some time in life. This is due to the 2 materials having different expansion and contraction rates. That being said…..the elements pay a huge roll in this. If you live in a state that gets snow and salts the road…the rims will peel and pit for sure. Salt will get between the chrome and the aluminum and the peeling begins.

I was told that the supplier to Chrysler was American Eagle. Also they are a SOB to deal with too.

If you buy stock rims…..don’t use them in winter…..

If you wait you can garbage pick the ones I will be throwing in the trash soon.

Good luck in your endevor.
