SXL Chrome wheels Peeling

Was cleaning my wheels today and noticed a bunch of flaking here and there on all 4 wheels! Any body else have this happen with the 19's (chrome)? Is this covered under the warranty? I've only had this car 6 months.

Ouch! I just cleaned the stupid wheels on Thursday and didn't notice any issues with mine after 8 months.
And I call them stupid because they are so hard to clean, I can't find a product to keep them shiny so I clean them by hand and all those little indentations take forever to get into and clean.

I've heard of this happening on the Optima SXL wheels as well.

Dealer will cover it under warranty for you.

Sounds like I'll be getting some shiny new wheels just in time for Spring! My wife is slightly annoyed that the road rash she put on two of them won't be around for me to endlessly complain about any longer....

LOL - had the same feelings when the non-chrome 19s got recalled. Wife got a second chance for sure. She learned her lesson, no curb rash on the new set yet (knock on wood).

Hi all new forum member here. I just bought a SXL and while cleaning the wheels I noticed the chrome was peeling on my wheels also, just wanted to know from the people that had this issue did the dealer replace your wheels.
Thanks

I bought my SXL 1 year and half ago, just seen my rims peeling too need to see if they will be covered under coverage of car.
