Unhappy sti wheels/paint chips

i have the silver bbs wheels on my sti and one of them has a ton of paint chips in it and i know its not from stones or anything, it seems as if the paint is just flaking off, anyone else have this problem. Im going to my dealer this week to see what they say......thanks

That is really odd since BBS has some of the best finishing techniques in the world. I'm sure they will help you out and stand behind the product.

Good Luck,

i went to the dealer today and they told me they will bring in a subaru rep. to look at it and decide if it can be repainted or replaced. I def dont want it repainted it should be replaced since it is a manf. defect. The collision guy at the dealer even said there is no way he could paint it so i dont know why they just wont order a new wheel......we will see

Just don't take no for an answer - refinishing is not as durable as an OEM finish. I don't care what anyone says.
