Wheel Finish peeling ~ 2010 Chevy Silverado Z71
I have two wheels that the surface is corroding and peeling the plating off of. I spoke with my dealer but he thought it was odd as he has same and no issues, yet.
Has any one else seen this issue. The ruck has never been off a marked highway or road(some dirt).
Would this be a warrantable item?2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4

79 Impala 350 4bbl 375 hp- sold (June 2011)to pay medical bills

I would definitely check into getting it covered under warranty. After all you do get a bumper to bumper warranty right? Are you still within that range?

Well paint surfaces are warrantied, but I dont know if they would consider wheel coatings to fall in that catagory.
Corrosion warranty only covers rust through.
I suspect it'll be a fight to get proper coverage.

I have the 20 chrome clad rims and so far have had them replaced 3 times because they started to peel, should be covered under warranty.

I'm sorry you are having this issue. This is going to be something that your dealer needs to see in order to know if it is covered or not. Have you set up an appointment with your dealer yet?

Spoke with the dealer and he said he hasn't seen anything like it. Did not offer to warranty or even contact GM about it. Kind of like other issues he just doesn't want to deal with the NEw GM on warranty issues. Still leaves me confused.

I have 2000 oem silverado aluminum polished rims. these are OEM clear coated aluminum. what I did was spray these wheels and the bumpers and side body strips with silicone lube spray and wipe off excess. so far they still looking good.
now on the inside of these wheels there is a coating on the aluminum that was turning to corrosion[white power fluff]. I washed the surface down with paint thinner to remove all oils after a good washing with dish soap to clean off the dirt. I even did a light sanding of the surface to get down to a solid shine surface . I then sprayed this interior inside surface of the rim with a dry antisieze spray coating designed to protect metal from salt corrosion which dries in about 2 min. that was 12 years ago. every 5 years or more when I get my tires replaced I do a very light touch up...look pretty good for a rust belt vehicle 13 yrs old.
I do know of wheels from GM that had metal chrome peel. some GM wheels where so bad that they caused brake issues and all kinds of scraping sounds and this was on the expensive caddy vehicles.
GM knows all this so that is why you get a 1 year on these issues....this should come with the 7 year 70,ooo mile corrosion warranty.
I had some rust form under my driver door at the door skin seam. the GM dealership repaired it by just spraying over the rust as the vehicle had 30,000 miles on it ... so much for quality repairs from them . no work is or has any warranty for rust issues after they fix it ...this is why they do what they do .
when I brought the vehicle back the next year the manager stated "you what this to last forever or what "!
