2013 F350 SRW King Ranch Chrome Clad Aluminum Wheels

Hello, just took delivery of a 2013 F350 SRW King Ranch today with the above referenced tire/wheel option and was curious which aluminum rims are used under the chrome clad cover? Does anyone have any pictures of these rims? I am probably going to order a set of the optional 20" aluminum King Ranch rims. Thanks for any information.

He may be talking about the alloy ones with the plastic chrome
cover that is glued on. What is under that is just unfinished alloy.

They are the rims!

Sean, they are the rims. I did not realize that the covers were glued on. When I purchased my initial impression was that they were chrome plated aluminum. After the first washing I realized these were chrome plated plastic covers. I am probably going to order the 20" painted aluminum KR rims because I am not to impressed with the plastic covers.

I so much agree. They make me thing cheep and cheesy. The one up side
is that they are engineered to work with the truck and the rated load.
I understand that most aftermarket rims are not.

Maybe someone can give more info on this.

Be ready for sticker shock on those 20" KR rims.

Just looked it up, MSRP on a 20" KR rim from the 2013s is over $1200 per wheel including the center caps.

I guess after spending almost $5k on new wheels they might mount and balance them for free?

You could go aftermarket and buy all 4 rims and possibly a matching spare for less than the cost of a single wheel.

you can buy OEM 20's with brand new tires for about $2k on eBay. I've got my eyes on a few sets of OEM 20" Harley rims. Just can't justify the shipping charges yet

Thanks

Hello, thanks everyone for your replies. The dealer I had purchased my truck from will sell me a set of four for a total of $3,200. Their price for these 20" premium aluminum rims seems pretty good for new right out of the box. Unfortunately I am in Lancaster County, PA and my Ford dealer is in Vernon, TX so I wont get a free mount and balance of the tires. After the new rims are mounted, I guess I can sell my chrome clad rims on eBay and get something for them.
