Peeling “alloy” rims

Post by joethepro » Thu May 21, 2020 7:15 pm

New to the forum. Love the info and the vibe here.
I have two Vibes. 05 with 350k miles
07 with 164k miles

The rims on 05 are in better shape than the 07!

Wicked peeling of the sport “alloy” wheels. Anyone have a solution? I got a price for sandblasting and new powder coat paint. $150 per wheel. Can buy new ones for that price.

And they are steel wheels with paint.

Outside of of sanding/rattle can at home or sandblast/powder coat, really no other solutions. could sand it down and plasti-dip it and then have different color wheels everytime the dip decides to come off.

or aftermarket wheelz.
