Can the chrome wheel covers be removed? When I tap on them, they sound like plastic hub caps. The saleman said they're "chrome clad" and are fused to the brushed metal rims...is this true. I did'nt want to remove the balance weights without getting more info.

They are not "meant" to be removed. Why would you want to?

Yes, I have the 800 dollar wasted option myself. They are chromed covered plastic in layman's terms.

I think the Caliber looks just as good with or without them and if I could sell them, I'd have a couple extra bucks in my pocket.
Thanks all for responding.

I was going to get the chrome wheels until I found out they were plastic. I went to a dealer and started tapping on a few of the wheels, they seemed kinda cheap.

For $800, there's much nicer wheels out there. :/

The '98, '99 Town Car Touring Sedan had the same type of chrome-plastic clad wheels. If the Caliber wheels are the same quality as the Lincoln's they will look better than any aftermarket alloys for years. Easy to clean, brake dust just wipes off wth a dry cloth. When the boss replaced my ,98 with a '01, I wanted to put the chrome ones on the new car because they still looked like new. Never happened because they wanted all the cars to look the same.
