Are Peeling Oem Chrome Wheels Covered By Extended Warranty

Recommended Posts

I have Lexus original chrome wheels (2007 Es 350) that are starting to peel in well of the lug nuts. Before jousting with Lexus if the warranty covers the wheels I wanted to sound out fellow owners. The warranty excludes "rust" but this is not rust - just bad chrome plating.

this should be covered bu the warranty. I have seen this before. If they give you excuses then kick up.

I had one wheel that was peeling.. they replaced it with no problems.

If the car is a's out of warranty probably. What is your in service date?

The wheels are aftermarket chrome plated, probably by the dealer. Lexus does not offer OEM chrome wheels, hasn't since 2000 or so.

Still covered by extended warranty which has another 30,000 miles and approx 2.5 years to run. Was at the local Lexus dealer and was certain I saw chrome wheels on display. Will check it out. Thanks.

They sell them, but they are factory wheels that have been chrome plated aftermarket.

shouldn't matter, if the dealer put them on they should be covered by the warranty, not sure about the extended warranty...

      Bought my Blue 2013 es350 last October.  Car had 38K miles on it.  Carfax indicated no wrecks/repairs.
      I bottomed the front of the car (wind damn,ferring, cowl whatever we call it) going into a parking lot.  A couple days later a big flake of paint falls off.  Take it to the dealer as it was still under warranty, dealer said "hey not our prob, you must have flexed the part too much".  I'm thinking maybe, but have had cars with soft bumpers before and have bottomed them the same, never have I had one flake off.  Have bottomed car a couple more times, paint flaking off in those areas too.  
      Anyone else experiencing this problem?  Reason I had included color of car is that I had seen  some issues mentioned about the navy blue paint.

      So, I'm not even sure if I can post this without permission but, here's my problem. I have 4 aluminum stock wheels for my 1998 SC300. They are almost in perfect condition. However, I do not want to try to sell them on Craigslist because the last time I tried all kinds of kids called me and just wanted the address where they were located but either never showed up or cruised by my house lots of times. So, Craigslist is not an option for me. Can anyone suggest where I can sell these wheels. 
      I replaced them with custom wheels a few years ago and the stock wheels have been boxed in my garage too long. It's time for them to go!

      I've lurked this site for a number of years, so I guess it's time I became an official member.  I bought my '07 ES350 new in '06 and it's been a great car....I plan on hanging onto her as long as I can.  She has the original rims, which are now leaking like a sieve in the cold weather.  I had no problems with tire leakage until I bought the first set of replacement tires, but ever since it's been a constant battle having the wheels "cleaned" and "sealed" at the tire shop.  I need to purchase a set of replacement rims but am undecided where to buy, what brand, how much I need to spend and all.  She's black, so I think silver or chrome would look the best. I have OEM 215/55R17 tires.  Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
      (If the old rims are not out-of-round and just need a GOOD refinishing, I'll likely keep them on hand as an extra set.)
