That sucks. I'm curious to know what they are asking for a new one. How are these fastened to the wheel?

Dealer said they have never seen it happen, I hate the dealer. I have to wait till jan 2nd to go back so they can take pictures and send a claim and figure what to do. It's clipped and glued I guess

If you are talking about the rim center caps then they are held in by plastic fingers on the cap. The cap just pops into the rim with firm fist pressure and can be removed with a very small flat blade screwdriver without having to remove the rim. They are held in pretty tight and won't just fall out. Someone helped it/them out of the rim. They shouldn't cost more than $5 each.

2006 Inferno Red SRT8 with groups I, II, Sunroof, K&N drop-in filter, Auto-dim mirror, Jet-180 T-stat, Predator, 300 SRT struts/springs, Chally SRT wheels.
Born 6-21-06, Home 4-26-10. 1/4 mile - 12.989 @ 108.78 in street trim. Traded 10-19-2012.
2006 Inferno Red R/T with R&T Born 8-12-05, Home 8-25-05, Sold 8-9-10.

You're talking about the chrome clad wheel cover. I don't think that is sold separately since it isn't supposed to come off. You will need another rim.

Looks to me like you could scrape the old adhesive off and reapply a new form of it. Or I wonder if that's what someone did before?

wow, never seen that happen before. take it back to the dealer, should be covered under warranty....although your clad-less pic I think confirms my suspicions that the daytona and blacktop wheels are the chrome clads w/o the cladding and a different finish treatment
