If you want matte black try plasti-dip.

So the outside is clear coat failure? Is this a common issue with just Dodge rims or all the cars?
I'm hoping STS has the stick-on wheel weights instead of clip-on weights. They might say "the clips ons are what we use and what we have" and if that's the case I may have to find a different tire place. I'll find out before I buy the rim skins.

Not a fan of plasti-dip. It always chips then you see speckles of silver under, then you end up having to constantly respray it all the time and it won't hide the obvious pitting. Sanding the oitting before hand it still won't be perfect. Skins appear to be the best option.

Sxt wheel skins imp 401x

Jtrosky....answer to your question of how do they mount. You must take take the wheels off the car and remove the center cap. There is a plastic holder that goes into the wheel center from the back and then install the skin and then tighten a wing nut to hold the skins in place. Then install wheel center cap. They are very secure..
NOTE: When it is time to take car in for new tires, make sure to tell the guys that you have wheel skins on so they won't damage them.
They look great...don't know how to post pictures but they look exactly like the picture on Suburban's web site.

Yeah, I have to do something for sure. And I DO NOT want clip on weight balancers OVER the skins. Here another shot of the wheel showing they used the outside weights currently. I didn't even know stick ons on the inside were an option? Do or can stick on come fly off easily or become dislodged from ice and snow over time?

Looks even worse in person up close.

You have nothing to worry about with the stick-on weights. They are probably used more often than not nowadays (a lot of wheels *must* use the since there is no lip to attach the clip-on style weights to). All tires places have stick-on weights available. They actually seem more common than the older clip-on weights nowadays. STS will have them and you won't have any issues. They've been on my Impala for years and obviously on my Challenger (both the stock wheels from the factory and the older-style 18" wheels I put on).
