Yes my 114's chipped and peeled 3 months after new. Eagle said it was chemicals from the roads so to bad. I went with polished after that. It takes a little to shine them back up but at least I have a nice shiney rim when I am done. After the chrome chips you are screwed. I have been running my polished rims all winter.

I had the same problem with the chrome 114's. I also had the super finished ones which didn't give me any problems. I kept the chrome ones waxed all the time and they still pitted. I don't have a solution to the problem. I went with different wheels.

I had the super polish and they did it. I was going for the chrome and the dealer showed me a set they were warrantying and warned me to stay away

I have the super finish as well. It's a pain to polish but at least I don't have to worry about chipping chrome.

My KMC's are doing the same thing only three months old:mad: I showed them to the dealer and he's checking to see what they will do. They have little chips and black corrosion spots -:t and I know its going to get worse.:mad:

Has anyone tried the Moto Metal wheels? I've been contemplating a set and I've been wondering if the chrome is any better on them...
