"Sport Edition" wheels by Tire Rack = BUYER BEWARE Likes Likes: 0

Tire rack's house brand of wheels called "Sport Edition" has some attractive designs. But BEWARE! The price is too good to be true. I picked up a set of Sport Edition P5 wheels and after only 5 days the paint was flaking off around the center caps and lugs.

Tire rack told me to take it up with the installer and that they wouldn't help me. The installer said that they have never seen such weak paint on a wheel. These things are JUNK! It would take some serious negligence to cause that much damage on the first installation.

Now I am stuck with them. They do look nice on the car but I will have to have them powder coated next time I get tires. By then I'm sure they will be just ugly.

From your pictures above, they clearly show carelessness from installation. No amount of paint can assist or help with negligence when it comes to installing, and whatever tools they used to install (tire machine, tire balancer, hand tools, etc.)

They blatantly communicated to you about "weak paint" to cover themselves. I wouldn't blame the paint or the manufacturer at all. You would have multiple places on the wheel if it did. Instead, all the paint coming off are around areas where the install technician used tools to install (center cap, and lug nut areas)
