Those who had wheel PVD chipping/peeling issues:

I know a lot of people have reported issues with PVD coming off around the edges of the stock PVD wheels, especially when tires are removed and remounted. I have a couple of questions for those of you who had this issue:

1) Was the issue cosmetic only, or did you have leaks around the beads?

and

2) Aside from simply buying new wheels, did anyone attempt a repair, like having their wheels recoated? If so, what was the result?

Thanks for your input.

My 2017 had this problem. About 12-13k miles they started.
Took about a month for ford to approve the replacements.
Just have all 4 replaced last week (15k miles on truck).
But I live in buffalo Ny so salt is a big problem.


my buddy has the same truck as me and his all did it also. 23k miles though. Ford replaced all of his last month.

I saw peeling on my wheels (and running boards) at 24K miles on the factory tires having never dismounted the tires. Ford replaced all 4 wheels and both running boards under warranty without asking questions, and I had them mount new tires at the same time. I doubt it would be worth refinishing the wheels. Get them replaced if you're within your 3/36.

Edit- cosmetic issues only but I didn't want it to become anything more. Plus I sliced my finger open badly on the peeling finish on my running boards while cleaning them once so I was already mad!

Well see, just got my first new set of Chrome PVD rims this spring. I am at 51,000 km, I have extended warranty to 200,000. I did not try to repair or repost, having warranty. Even if you tried I doubt it would last. Yes it was mostly cosmetic and hard to notice once the tires were changed, but it was noticeable.
