Default Clear coat peeling

The clear coat looks like its peeling from two of P7220110.jpgmy alcoas. Trying to decide what to do about it. Have though about painting them black but not sure what product would do a good job and not wear off too fast. Powder coat would be ideal but i don't have the time now. I don't think i want them flat, some gloss looks better in my opinion.

Your clear is definitely chipping, you also got a little pitting going on there.

You can sand even the chipping parts, then paint it with some primer and so duplicolor wheel paint. Its what i did for mine. They came out except for one wheel i have is chipping because i didnt prep it as well as the others. (I also did a little bit more on mine)

The better you prep the wheel the better it will come out.

Heres a pic of mine.


Edit: Thanks fra, beat me to it.

Another thing that i can add to that ist write up, they make the stripper in an aresol can if you decide to go that route, but your wheels dont look as bad as mine so i dont think you have to .

What is the name of the color paint you used, its perfect. I was afraid black would be too much for my truck but i think the color you used would stand just enough.
