Have pretty much the same issue with the chrome clad rims clicking. As odd as it sounds, I fixed mine for a short time. Prior to rotating the fronts to the rear, I concluded it was the center cap making the noise. I popped out the cap and greased the mounting points liberally and re-installed them (front ones). The noise seemed to go away for a reasonable amount of time but unfortunately it did return. Then I rotated the wheels/tires front to rear and now everything is quiet. For how long, I don't know.
But for what it is worth, give it a try. Pop out the plastic center caps and drive around and see if the clicking is still there. If not, then why is the cladding flexing enough to make this a problem. If so, then the entire cladding must be flexing on the aluminum base rim.
Will definitely follow this thread and look for others with this issue. Really not looking forward to hearing the clicking for the rest of the life of the rims.
