So I thought my wheels where just dirty with brake just. I tried to clean them but just wasn't able to. I had the car professionally cleaned and they pointed out it wasn't brake dust but overspray. Outside of wheel is fine.

Are the inside barrels of the wheels supposed to be finished as the outside?

I have 2 Hellcats with OEM wheels and neither were polished on the interior. Come to think of it neither was my 2008.

Two of my trackhawk wheels were like this, so I pointed it out to the dealer. Dodge replaced them under warranty.

I actually bought a set of devils wheels as extra for my Redeye. Having them stripped & powder coated, so the barrel of the wheels will look as good as the front.

On my 22 the barrels are basically overspray, another fantastic cost savings by Stellantis! They are PITA to clean now.

This is why Dodge lost buyers in the 70's and 80's. They can get away with it now because we don't buy these cars for those reasons. We don't even mind the plastic interiors. We give a pass on all kinds of ish for 800 horses. It's a muscle car for God's sake lol. I wonder if the Pacifica has these types of flaws?
