I bought the aluminum wheels because they looked awesome, but they are starting to look like crap with all the cracks developing and they are getting worse. Is this normal? Is this merely cosmetic? Will the manufacturer's warranty cover replacing all four rims? Thanks in advance for the advice. Fly Navy!!!Attachment 99079
I have the same thing on mine and did not use anything wrong, only car soap and a soft sponge, the clear coat used is horrible.
Most if not all aluminum wheels that have a clear coat will spider or chip at some point, but the rv wheels are just cheap with the coatings.
