Default Chrome clad separation

I've got an '06 cruiser with 9 spoke chrome clad wheels. I moved my car in the yard and noticed the chrome kind of flapping. It looked like the only thing holding it on was the wheel weight. I went to my local tire guy thinking he had to have seen something like this before, he hadn't. We took off the wheel weight and kind of peeled the chrome piece off and it looks like caulk or a flexible type of liquid nails or something. Does anybody know what I can glue this back on with?Any ideas out there? I'd appreciate it, thanks.

Can't help with your question but I do know your one of hundreds with the same problem. There's a couple years of the cruiser where owners had bad problems with the Chrome peeling off. If it was caught in time, some had the dealer replace the wheels. Way too late now.

The OP has "chrome clad" wheels, which are essentially plastic hubcaps glued onto a steel wheel. The glue has let go on one of them, and he needs to know what kind of glue to use to stick it back on.

I don't know the answer either. . .

I put aftermarket rims on my gen 2 which had the same rims as yours.

The rims look good but well, it's on a gen2, so it was a waste of money ya know.
