For those of you that are planning to get new tires for your chrome clad wheels be aware that the shop should balance the tire from the inside of the wheel meaning they should use an adapter from the inside and have the adapter on the wheel and not on the chrome clad hole. The shop should not balance the tires on the chrome clad hole because it is not necessarily in the center of the wheel because the chrome clad is a "plastic" cover that goes over the wheel itself. That is why the shop should put the adapter from the inside and on the wheel.

According to DC Commanders OEM " CHROME CLAD" Rims MUST be Balanced
on Hunter Brand "Road Force" Tire Balancer's. This was learned recently when had new set of "Goodyear Wrangler SA" AT's mounted at my local tire store.
Tire store used traditional Balancer and they ground off the snap ridge
that holds Center Cap & failed to balance.
RoadForce balance goes for $25.00 per tire.(New Rim $475.00)ea
