jtwright replied to jtwright's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks Maurice and Loren. The areas where the flaking has occured are an oxidized copper color and the flakes or chips are like tin foil supporting the plating answer. The dealer's response, from Porsche, was they would give me the name of the company in Germany who could replate them. Thanks again for the answers. Jim
I am a new poster to your board. My 2000 911 Millineum edition has chrome five spoke wheels that are peeling. After one contact, Porsche Cars has declined to repair them. I am seeking advice on A. contacting Porsche, B. Determining if I'm the only one with the problem. I am the only owner. It has 22,000 miles, is on the second set of dealer installed tires, has only been washed by myself and the dealer, with no wheel cleaner other than soap, has only been in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, i.e. no road chemicals. It has one curb ding, but that's not where the chrome is peeling. No track use or excessive brake heating. It has been garaged most of the time, but did sit outside some. It has a large flake on one front lip, a couple of small flakes on spokes on rear tires, and one on the inner rim. I could understand a manufacturer not wanting to stand behind some parts and finishes after seven years. Seems to me that wheels, absent any abuse, however, should be more durable. I have owned several Porsches in the past and had no particular issues. Thanks for any assistance you can provide. Jim
