    Default Wheels peeling

    Hi guys,

    Washed the car yesterday and noticed that the wheels are starting to show signs of "peeling", it's on the inside edge of a few spokes, I had noticed it on one but now all of them have the same problem, any ideas?

    I will be going back to Vauxhall to see what they say, they can look at these when they're trying to fix the CC..........again eh

    Thanks
    Bryan

    I have seen a few alloys damaged by wheel cleaner, I just use good old soap and water on mine, alloy wheel cleaner drys out the laquer sometimes ?

    How long you had them?? They may still be under wheel warrenty, Try contacting the supplier you got them from or the manufacturer.
    Worth a go --& dosn't cost anything...

    hi guys,

    I'm confident that it has not been caused by alloy wheel cleaner and the car is 17months old, I will be going back to the dealer to see what he says.
