Paint peeling off a car always reminds me off what brake fluid does to it.... but I do know of another mk2 with this issue and the dealer replaced the wheels.

I want to bump this as I am having the same issue, didn't want to repost, and was wondering what experience people had in going to Ford with it lately. I'm pretty disappointed/upset. the car has 47k on it, 2 and a half years old (owned it for just over a year myself) and adding insult to injury I just had new tires installed so to get new wheels (which I can't afford) I'd basically be paying for installation of the tires twice.

Ford replaced all them under my bumper to bumper warranty

Took the car back to the dealer. They didn't even hesitate to replace all of the wheels under warranty. The service advisor said they had replaced them before for the same issue. Hope that helps.

Same problem with my 2011. And I was only at 34k miles when it started happening. Dealership wouldnt do anything about it.

The first time I went there they didn't want to replace them. Go and talk to the service manager.

My dealership did nothing under warranty for this issue. So I am going to paint them myself right around the time I have new tires put on.
