Default ordered wrong wheel

I have a 2001 le with the peeling chrome issue on the rims. One of them is always leaking air so I ordered a new one. the new one I ordered has a dimple like thing in the spokes where the stock one does not and looks like this:CHRYSLER OEM RIMS CHRYSLER FACTORY WHEELS STOCK RIM CHROME REPLICA WHEEL USED RIMS CHRYSLER Wheels CHRYSLER OEM RIMS CHRYSLER FACTORY WHEELS STOCK RIM CHROME REPLICA WHEEL USED RIMS CHRYSLER Rims

will it be an issue to run the one with the dimble along with the other rims?

Only cosmetic. That is the early version.

ok so there should be no weight difference between the wheels that might cause an issue?

No difference except the dimple. Plain on the original 2000/2001 models, the dimple came out in 2002.

Well I was wrong on that. How long did they use the dimpled wheel.?

Not sure if it was only 2002 or it went into the 2003 models or even further.

ok last question, I heard that this newer style wheel doesn't get all corroded and peel like the older ones. Is this true or do these wheels get all messed up too?

The "peeling" wasn't limited to just the regular wheels. Some of the GT wheels also had their problems. It seemed to be a problem with only a year or three of manufacturer from the American Racing Wheels company. If you caught it early enough, some dealers replaced the offending wheels under warranty. Most times it was the second owner that had the problem and it was too late to have the dealer do anything, like the tape stripes on the bumper, take it back fast enough and the bumpers was fixed, replaced or painted to match the body color.

My 2001 Limited, built in March '01, has dimpled wheels. The chrome is peeling, although not as badly as it did on my earlier '01 with non-dimpled wheels. I'm not sure if this means the dimpled wheel has better chrome, the wheels are not original to the car, or if I'm just luckier this time around. I had rim leak issues with the earlier '01 until I bought tires from Discount Tire. They ground the crap out of the rims and used sealer on the beads: I never had another problem with leaks.
The dimpled wheels were used through very early 2003. Most '03s came with the infamous "chrome-clad" wheel, aka a plastic hubcap glued to a steel wheel.
