The clear coat isn't so bad, with some fine sanding you can just re-clear them. I had issues with them too and Ford would do nothing about it. I've been searching for paint codes now forever because I really like my rims, but I can't find the proper paint code for them to keep them stock.

Luckily on mine so far it is only happening in the little round gaps between spokes, and no where else. So it's not very noticeable unless you are right up on them.

But yeah, Ford should have done a better job with these, or at least fixed them when the issue started happening.
2009 Ford Focus Coupe SES -- What I don't know about modern cars would fill up a good sized country, but what I don't know about 50's and 60's Ford engines, would fill up a 4 oz glass.
