Ain't that the truth, love my rims but already have a few chips from just driving, they show up "white" in color so they stand out. Not like old school whereas if you get a small chip it still the same color and do not stand out as much.As much as I like the black chrome look, I was shocked how EASILY that "vapor" coating the SRT wheels gets damaged.
My 2012 300 SRT got a flat tire once. I removed the flat tire and made the mistake of lying it flat on the floor. When I mounted the wheel back on, I noticed just the weight pressing the wheel onto the pavement surface was sufficient to scrape the black chrome off the rim lip.
Needless to say I was pretty p*ssed!
They're the same wheels that have been optional since the '13 SRTs came out:I wonder if the black vapor chrome wheels might be jumping the shark?
