I have a 2003 Hemi with OEM 20" Chrome Clad Wheels. I took the truck to a local shop to have some curb rash and peeling of the finish cleaned up. They guy who did the work destroyed the finish on two wheels so they painted all four with a Dodge wheel paint (PAK). This has destroyed the look of the truck and I need to get the chrome look back on the wheels. Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can get the original chrome clad look back on the wheels? If not, has anyone found a reputable place to buy 20" OEM Chrome Clad style wheels?

Thanks

generally before scouring the various websites I would look at Craigslist in your area, people always sell their OEMs at a reasonable price and usually in pretty good condition. I recently used this website to pick up some SRT replicas

Performance Tire Plus

They have the 03-05 era replicas as well for 285 a piece. I still vote Craigslist though, maybe eBay.

Thanks for the advice and glad to be aboard! No pictures yet - ever time I go out to look at the truck I get mad!! Bought the truck new in '03 and it has been great! Looking to put a new Ram in the garage and save this one for Sunday rides.

Have been shopping Ebay all day but had not thought of Craigslist (great idea!).

There was a set of polished aluminum petals for sale I believe on DT. These would be my choice if I was going with petals. Plenty of the newer 08 clads come up for sale. Good luck...

Just an update - found a nice set of OEM wheels with tires on Craigslist. About 80 miles from the house but well worth the trip! Wheels / tires are in great shape. Paid $600.

Thanks for the tip on Craigslist!

good grab on CL, people always looking to offload they're stock stuff reasonably.
