Brembo wheel problems

Only got 12k on my 2011 5.0 and the wheels just seem to be cheap as they start to chip up. Original owner and garage kept, seen rain twice and no gravel driveways ever. Anyone else have the same thing happen? If so, did you take them back to the dealership for a complaint?

Ya I ran into this on my first set. Got all 4 replaced under warranty and my new ones are night and day difference. Seem to have a better clear coat that makes them pop really good. Take them in it's a pretty common problem from what I was told

Like this? I still don't know what did this. If you can't tell it's the inside edge of the rim, not the outside edge. It feels like a bubble or something around it, but I'm not sure.

Damn, no like that haha. Just black specs basically but still annoying. Yours looks bad like something got in there.

Awesome, just what I needed to know! It's about 40 min to my dealership so wanted to check up first!

You can imagine the look on my face when I saw it. I want to get new wheels soon and sell these and like a week after I decide that I spot the sucker.

Yeah, that had to suck. I wanna sell mine as well to just buy a tire and rim package all together. Just kinda messed up that my wheels got those specs on them from seeing no bad weather or nothing.

Plastidip would be a good solution

Plastidip looks cheap. Those wheels too expensive to just do that.

I beg to differ.. I have won many shows with plasti dip wheels.. Also depends on color of car. Black rims don't look good on certain colors IMO.

My Brembos came off of a 2013 GT. I guess they resolved these issues by then because mine are amazing and they always look great, but they really pop when they're clean.

I had one flake massively within days and it was replaced. I think now if I took them back with the small chips in they'd just tell me to pound sand. If they get really bad, I'll refinish them, they are good looking enough to merit that.

they are painted right? I am getting my wheels refinished and the guy really wanted to paint my rims over powdercoating them as he could mix practically any color he wanted and all I could think of was these rims. I pushed him to powdercoat them and he agreed soon as I mentioned what color I wanted haha.

Yep, 3 step paint. Black base, gray colour and clear. Problem is, the base coat is glossy and that makes for uneven adhesion of the colour coat. That and the fact the paint is the likely the cheapest crap Ford could lay its hands on.

How did you get the lettering on the calipers painted? Mine are getting scuffed and they're starting to look bad.

Just paint the entire thing and get decals. It looks much better than stock.
