I have a 2009 Titan SE...Heavy Metal Chrome.My fiance hit a curb and damaged the wheel.I thought they were chrome rims.Until she hit a curb and and peeled back part of the wheel.I would say about 4 inches long.To my surprise it is actually some type of molding that is attached to the wheel.I brought it to a Nissan dealership and guy in parts dept said I would have to replace the whole wheel at a cost of about $700-800.But he can get it at his price for just over $600.Which is way more than I can afford right now.Then this guy I deal with at Firestone told me a guy that has a Ford truck had same thing happened and was able to just replace the molding at a much cheaper cost.So my question yo ya'll....Does anyone know if I can just pull that molding off and replace it? Is there a place online that I can buy one at a good price? Thanks for any help.

It's always women huh? lol

It'd probably be cheaper to have the whole rim redipped, but idk. I'm not exactly a chrome guy

Underagedtitan you couldn't be more right.LOL I really don't think dipping will work.It's a thick chrome plastic that looks like it was put on with some serious adhesive onto the wheel.Guess I'll have to take a picture of it and try to post it.Guy at dealership even said he has never seen that before.

Sounds like they did those rims pretty cheap... Maybe get some filler, then buy some chrome spray paint? Might not look the best, but definitely an option
