If your car is a low mileage car not used as a daily, you likely wont get any issue in three years. Brembo’s car lives outside near to the coast for long periods so subject to the elements and salty air which won’t help. That said I have forged alloys on mine no blistering but the finish just doesn’t seem robust or quality. I also have a set of standard alloys in silver with winter tyres, they are a much better quality finish and are made in a different country to the forged alloys. My car is three years old with just under 8000 on the clock, so low mileage compared to Brembo’s car. I have come to the conclusion that I will have the forged one’s refurbished when they show signs of any marks or blisters.
Mines booked in for detailing/ceramic coating so I thought I’d also get the wheels refurbed using powder coat (thicker than wet paint) primer and powder coat lacquer top coat. Just not happy with the oem finish on my particular wheels which are showing signs of whitening and minor surface pitting. Not finally decided between satin black (oem) or chrome black. If anyone has pics of chrome black on forged wheels I’d appreciate you posting. Think some pics were posted last year but can’t find them.
I’m looking to take my car in to see about getting the wheels replaced under warranty. Forged wheels are blistering in the corners, Do I need to take it back to the ford garage I bought it From or can it be any ford dealer nearby?
Yeah, I just noticed very small dots on my forged wheels that I think will turn into blisters. I reckon it’s small stone chips that allow salt/water to get under the top coat. Mine is 3 years old with 12k miles.
