Chrome Wheelskins transform OEM Styled Steel or alloy wheels into expensive-looking chrome wheels.

Chrome Wheelskins Installed
Wheelskins enhance the appearance and value
of your car, truck, or SUV at a fraction of the cost of chrome wheels.
Chrome Wheelskins closely
match the the geometry of specific wheels, following each contour and going into
the holes between the spokes. They fit like a 'second skin'
superimposed directly on to the OEM wheel's alloy or styled steel wheel.
The geometry of the wheel style is unchanged, but it is now gleaming chrome!!

|Phil -- I just wanted to take a minute to say "Thanks!" I
received the (IMP-22XN) wheel skins for my Isuzu Rodeo last week. They
installed in minutes and look fantastic! I've been complimented almost
daily. No one can believe they aren't real chrome wheels (even the people
who knew I was getting them). I have passed the name AutoAmenity.com on with
pride. Thanks again! Tim R, Nashville TN
Phil, I received my order of 8 sets IMP-75x 17 inch Wheelskins for the 2007 Honda CRV. The Chrome Wheelskin looks really nice and really improves the look of the boring stock CRV metal rims. Thanks for your time and looking forward to do more business with you!

Thought I would drop you a line and tell you that I have installed my new (IMP-66X) wheel skins on my new 2006 Tacoma and DAMN WHAT A DIFFERENCE! soon as I get my graphics package on I will be back for more CHROME! Thanks again Michael D Lecanto FL
Phil, Thank you for the replacement (8059s-16) hubcap. My Wheel covers look great. The true character of a company shows when you have a problem that needs to be resolved. Even though I had only a minor problem with one of the hubcaps, your prompt and courteous response to resolve the matter was well executed. It shows that your company is at the pinnacle when it comes to character. I will use you in the future and will refer anybody in need of your commodities to do business with you. Best Regards, Terrance T, Glenwood IA
Check our pictures to ensure that your wheels match the Wheelskins
exactly. Count the lugs, the spokes, and the holes or slots, and make sure they
are exactly the same shape. Wheelskins fit perfectly on the rims they are
designed for, but they are not interchangeable with other styled wheels even if
they look "pretty close." Call or email if you have any question. Full sets of
(4) Wheelskins can be ordered through our secure online shopping cart. If you
need singles or pairs, call toll-free 888-526-0273 (business hours in Seattle).
Everyone loves the sparkle of chrome on their vehicles. Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of real chrome plated wheels, whether alloy or steel, is their tendency to corrode when exposed to winter salt driving conditions, or even to coastal salt air. Hence the fine print warrantee warning of chrome wheel manufacturers: “Do not drive chrome wheels in snow!” and “Salt can deteriorate and corrode your chrome.”
What's the story with Hubcaps versus Wheelskins?
Wheelskins are the best kept secret in the automotive wheel fashion industry. When installed, you can only tell the difference between Wheelskins and real chrome rims if you know what to look for. Thousands of sets of Wheelskins are sold to auto dealers, who mount them on new and used vehicles for sale on their lots. Their customers are very happy they have purchased their vehicles with 'chrome wheels' at a bargain price.
Hubcaps ('wheel covers' is an equivalent term) dress up standard steel wheels. Hubcaps are completely interchangeable, any style of the proper size will fit any standard steel wheel. But hubcaps do not fit Styled wheels. Styled Wheels do not have the recess around the bead that standard hubcap legs mount into, so standard hubcaps can NOT fit any styled wheel. Therefore...
were invented in the 1990s as a great way to put brilliant chrome covers on
styled wheels. Precision molds were designed to produce wheel covers that
perfectly match the geometry of specific styled wheels. They fit like a
second skin, hence their name. Wheelskins mount with steel or plastic clips that
grab the rim either at its outer edge or at the base of its spokes.
Impostor™ chrome Wheelskins are a snap to install, and are easy to keep clean: simply wash with regular auto soap and water or take it through a car wash to maintain their new appearance. Wax the same as your car.
Wheelskins are constructed of high-impact, corrosion resistant, triple-chrome plated ABS polymer to give your vehicle a sharp appearance for many years. ABS has the attributes of rigidity, strength, and high resistance to salt, chemicals, heat, cold, and impact. A major advantage to this material is that when it gets scratched, it does not degrade further with time and exposure to these factors. So five years hence, the scratch will look the same as it did the first day. Whereas chromed metal, either steel or alloy, will react with oxygen and salt, and will rust, pit, scale, or flake after it has been scratched. There are several manufacturers of Wheelskins, the two best known are the Impostors™ brand and the Wheelskins brand. There is only one model of Wheelskin that matches each specific styled wheel, and that wheelskin does not fit any other wheel.Auto enthusiasts and dealers across the US certify to the quality of AutoAmenity hubcaps products and services.
