I picked up a set of these factory 20's. im debating on taking the cladding off and having them powder coated. has anyone seen what the steel rim looks like under these?

There is no steel wheel underneath. That is the full aluminum wheel. Not a hubcap. These are just plated and clear coated. They may be able to just powder coat over the top of what is there.

The only 20” steel wheels I have seen are for the smaller trucks like the Traverse and GMC Terrain. Those won’t fit a Tahoe or Suburban. For Tahoe’s and Suburbans and other full size trucks, steel wheels are 17” that are used either for fleet models or spare tires. Now, this is the US market. If you are outside the US, then there maybe differences.

If you have them on already, take the hub cap off and decide for yourself. As long as you like the look, you are the only one you need to make happy.

they are defiantly 20's and I've only seen them on a few trucks. If I take the cladding off it is near impossible to put it back on. it is filled with a spray foam type glue. it would never be the same

The ones pictured are aluminum wheels. They are chrome plated. GM doesn’t offer a OEM steel wheel with a hubcap—at least on a full size truck. They do on some of the models like Traverse or Terrain.

Like I said, need actual pictures of the wheel. If it is an OEM, it would have GM stamp on the wheel.

Back a few years ago I bought a set of 20” Chrome wheels from a member here and put them on my 09 Z71 Tahoe, the Chrome portion was plastic and it looked like a hubcap that was permanently attached the the wheel. Not sure if this is what the OP is talking about but it was obviously attached to the wheel on some way.

Then that is probably the case. The only time I’ve run into these were dealership “upgrade” wheels.

The wheel underneath would likely look like this:

If it is aluminum, then you can even put something like plasti dip to coat it to see if you like the way it looks or not before going all in on powder coat. Wheel shape won't change. Heck if you don't want to spend any money, photoshop will allow you to view what it would look like....
