Default Chrome Clad 20" Factory Wheel Noise

Hey guys - I was wondering if anyone else has had problems with the cladding on the 09' sport factory 20's? Mine aren't chipping like many of the other issues I've seen but (according the the local dealer) is separating from the wheel itself and now there's an awful creaking/clicking noise when the wheels are turning... Its driving me nuts. According to the dealer this isn't covered under my extended warranty and the only solution is to replace the wheels (again, according to the dealer). They even charged me an hour shop rate to "diagnose" the issue.

Anyone else know anything about this?

If the chrome clad is seperating itself from the actual wheel, couldn't you just re-glue it?

Afterall, the chrome clad covers are just glued on.....

Or just remove the chrome cladding altogether and have the bare wheel cleaned of glue residue and finished however you like. The bare wheel is identical in shape to the chrome cladding.

Thanks guys.. BTW how hard is it to get the cladding off the aluminum wheel (glue and all)?? I've heard it's a real procedure. LowUFO did you get the aluminum refinished?

Not me. But others have gotten them powdercoated and they look awesome.
