Rims - 16" 9 spoke chrome clad #2269

my wife curbed the right side rims and took off the chrome and ground down some of the plastic on the front and rear..

does anyone know if the plastic chrome cladding can be removed from these wheels and what is under it?

I really like the look of these on the car but she has killed 2 of them.

Sounds like the kind of wheels I've got on my '06, but mine separated. I moved my car yesterday while I mowed the lawn and noticed the chrome was kind of flapping. The only thing that was really holding it on was the wheel weight. So I went to my local tire guy thinking he would have seen something like that before but he said he'd heard of it but never seen it. We took off the wheel weight and peeled the chrome off and it looks like it's glued on with some sort of caulk. I figured I'd get on the forum and see if anyone had the same experience as me, and see if anyone knew what kind of glue or maybe a construction silicone might fix it? My wheels still look good so I would hate to have to buy new ones.
