99 E430 sport rims peeling

The silver paint on the spokes of my rims is peeling badly. My dealer says they have never heard of such a thing. They attribute it to road salt. Hmmm, road salt in Sw Fla is asked. They said that is what causes that. Anyone else having issues like mine.

RE: 99 E430 sport rims peeling

Wheel finish has been an issue for years. In the past I have owned a 76 450SE and an 87 420SEL. The finish failed on both sets of original wheels. I would occasionally find business cards in my wiper advertising assorted companies that refinished them.

Smile Wash Chemicals

I have been told that certain detergents and wash chemicals cause this in Florida. I am East Central Florida and my e430 rims are peeling badly.
