Thanks, getting the paint off the chrome is pretty easy, since the kid did no prep work at all and just spray bombed the wheels and bumpers.
I just used some aircraft stripper and some elbow grease.
I was surprised to see that the chrome under the layers of spray paint was in next to new condition.
I am just pissed about the tires, I was planning on changing the tires and wheels and storing the OEM wheels once I wore out the current tires. ( giving me time and fiances to repair everything else that is needed )
Yet I do not trust these tires with my wife driving this truck on occasion.
So I have to switch gears and make tires and wheels a priority.
No big deal really I just hate to think someone could have tried to cover up a problem like this with paint or that the paint could have caused the dry rot.
Either way I am disappointed at myself for not spotting it sooner.
If left the wheels alone I am positive I would have missed the dry rot until a tire blew out on I95
I guess I cant get too mad since I did catch the problem before I put the truck on the road.
