Chrome Clad 17" wheels question
 
I have the 17" chrome clad wheels on my Jeep and I was wondering what the wheels look like without that silly cover on em. Does anyone know and / or have pics?

Thanks

I think your talking about the same wheels I had before I bought the Mambas. They are the Moduflex wheel.

I have them in my basement and I just looked but I don't see how that cover comes off without breaking it.

Hahaha right?! Seems like a beeyatch to take off. What do you think holds the wheel skins on? Tabs or glue?
