My wife drives a 2017 Acadia Limited. It is the 2016 body with Denali features including the 20" Chrome looking Wheels.

She hit a curb and hit her front passenger wheel. The wheel appears to have a plastic cover. Where can I find this cover to replace?

Thanks in Advance

Welcome to the forum.
Those wheels are chrome clad - meaning the plastic chrome piece is glued to the wheel. You might be able to locate a supplier for the chrome piece if you search the 'net for "wheel skins," but Acadia wheel skins will probably be difficult to find. Best bet is to shop for a new (or used) wheel on eBay or some other such site. eBay usually has a good selection.

You should be able to find wheel skins on eBay. Replacing it is the real challenge. Once you chisel off the old skin, you are left with mounds of an epoxy like substance that really doesn't want to be removed.

As @speleos posted, probably easier to find a replacement wheel.

Chrome Clads aren't really intended to be fixed. Definitely replace. Hopefully you can find one on marketplace or something in good shape, cause they can be pricey

Someone on the forum removed the cladding and polished the aluminum wheels. They even posted photos of their work in PhotoBucket - don't know if those pics are available any more. Though the glue was a PITA to remove, the final product turned out pretty well.
