Stock Rims Peeling??
I have the aluminum alloy stock 16" rims, that have the 5 spokes? to them. I'm not into rims.
My question is, they seem to be forming the while stuff in spots. It sort of looks like... chewing gum or white paint or something in spots. It then seems that when it goes long enough it bubbles, and then flakes off.
My question is, is this just the clear coating from the factory on the rims? It seems shiney under the white gunk.
Now if it is a clear coat, how could i strip this off and re apply it? I live where there is alot of salt, and sand associated with the winter. I really do not want to have to buy new rims, because I actually really like the stock ones that came with the truck... and don't think the truck deserves new rims.
