2015 silverado wheel peel

Recommended Posts

Hello all...attached is a photo of one of the 20" "polished" 5 spoke wheels on my 2015 silverado. As you can see, the clear coating is pealing and in other areas is starting to "bubble" which will eventually break open and start peeling as well as water and time goes on. I started to peel (flake) some of this off, and to be honest, I would rather have the true polished wheel underneath anyway, so I want to know how to remove the rest? I can't find much talk about this problem anywhere on the net other than it seems that one could use paint stripper? Before I go out and possibly destroy these wheels, I want some others on here to comment on how I can safely remove the rest.  

 

These will look good - almost chrome like shine, once removed. 

 

Thanks in advance

Do you still have any bumper to bumper coverage? I wonder if that would be covered. I have the exact wheels to.

No. 47,000 now (about 41 when this started). Not to mention I would rather have it gone anyway (which I obviously did) as the wheels look like chrome now. Not much on the net I could find on this, so I kinda did this on my own. I hope to hekp others in the future and how cheap and easy it was to do and not cause any damage.

how much labor was involved after you applied the product? Was it alot of scrubbing/scraping/peeling or would it blast off with a good pressure washer after you applied the kleanstrip?
