The clear coat on mine went bad within my 2 year warrantee and CR replaced all 4. The new ones did the same thing after about 2 years. Now I just live with it.

I ordered a new center cap from the company that makes the series 6 wheels and have never heard back, I have pay pal looking into that as we speak. I did find them on ebay for less but what is the point shiny center caps on corroded wheels. the camper is way to nice looking for that may just go buy quality mags.

Another symptom of rims being made in china. Probably thinned out clear coat to save $. I wonder if you can have the rims cleaned/sandblasted and a good body shop spray a clear on it?

That's an idea but I think I can go to discount tire and buy four quality rims with at least the same strength for less, I will check on your idea I might get surprised

Saw online refinishing costs about $100/ wheel plus shipping. They do sell kits to do it yourself.

Those are probably made at the same China factory....I'd opt for the good ol North American know how and proper paint /clearcoat.
