Default Chrome clad wheelskin removal

Hello all. I want to have the 20" rims on my 2013 Challenger powdercoated matte black. I'm assuming the rim is identical to the wheelskin in shape. Has anyone else on here done this? Does anyone have photos? How would I go about removing the wheelskins without damaging the rims? The owner of the powdercoating place said they could do it for an additional $100. I don't think I want to pay an additional $100. Any tips or pointers on how to remove them would really be appreciated. Please help! Thanks in advance.

The chrome cladding is glued to your wheel.

You will need a heat gun and a pry tool to remove it. Here are three DIY videos and a photo of a bare wheel with the glue residue:

I looked into doing this when I bought my challenger but decided just to get aftermarket wheels. I still have the stock 20s as spare wheels. let me know how your wheels turn out...post pics of the process
