Most automotive styling experts agree – nothing can boost a vehicle’s appearance as much as installing a set of custom wheels, especially brilliant, gleaming, chrome wheels. We’re drawn to the bright chrome rims surrounded by black rubber, which make the car or truck stand out even if it’s otherwise unmodified. Chrome wheels are the type of accessory that gets everyone’s attention and makes you want to glance back at your ride when you’re walking away.

But custom wheels are a significant investment of cash, and if their price makes too big of a hit on your budget we have the perfect alternative – Wheel Skins! Wheel Skins are the inexpensive way to have stylish chrome wheels on your car or truck. As the name suggests, Wheel Skins are overlays that perfectly conform to the shape of your wheels in every detail, like a second skin, for the simulated look of actual chrome rims.

Wheel Skins are NOT hub caps. Hub caps are universal wheel covers that can be used on any steel wheel designed for their use, as long as the diameter is the same. Such wheels have recesses to accept the retainers on the perimeter of the hub cap. Wheel Skins are manufactured for use on styled steel and aluminum wheels. Because of their form fitting design, each set of Wheel Skins is created for a specific style wheel. Wheel Skins just snap in place over your wheels, and once installed no one will be able to tell you didn’t spring for set of chrome rims unless they get up close to your wheels and know what to look for.

Wheel Skins correspond to every feature of your wheels. Every curve of the spokes will be duplicated and every slot or hole in between will be completely exposed. Besides an inexpensive upgrade, Wheel Skins are also the affordable way to repair unsightly corroded or abrasion damaged rims. Trying to sand, paint, and polish away such defects can be very time consuming, with often less than satisfactory results. In contrast, installing a set of Wheel Skins takes only minutes, and the dazzling chrome will deliver an appearance that just can’t be achieved with paints and polishers.

ABS plastic is a type of thermoplastic that is impact, heat, and chemical resistant. Its strength, rigidity, and ruggedness have made it a material of choice for the vehicle manufacturers who use it to make original equipment parts, and also why it was chosen to make Wheel Skins. Once formed into the specific wheel shape, each ABS Wheel Skin is then triple chrome plated to create its brilliant, long lasting luster. And unlike a steel or aluminum wheel that would start to rust or corrode underneath if the chrome was scratched, if a Wheel Skin is so damaged it will never show any more damage than the original scratch.

Do They Fit 07 Alloy Rims?
I have the six spoke alloys on my 07 Sierra 2nd gen and wasn't sure if they would fit, yes they do! They added that little bit of extra chrome I needed on my rims.
