This is a problem common to one or two manufacturers. The wheels just simply can't stand our climate, I'm sure it has something to do with the cold and the salt. In Florida, are these wheels would be perfectly okay.
The problem is that the wheel has a diamond cup machined face and then it is lacquered. The lacquer simply just comes off. There is no primer or paint in between to hold it all together. So they corrode underneath. The answer is to have a different finish. Most people wouldn't actually notice the difference between this Diamond shiny finish and the standard silver finish that does last the British weather. You would need to replace the centres, I would suggest you get those from Chrysler, and am afraid yes, unless you protect them. They will eventually corrode again. The other part, I mean the wheel. Because the corrosion is only on the face. It is relatively easy to deal with, so we could do them on our same day service. You are just simply need to bring the car to us and leave the with us for a day. Here's an example of some that have been done in that way.
