Replaced the stock tires today
Apparently Ford has an issue with the PVD Chrome layer on the wheel. As you’ll see the Chrome layer pulls away from the rim in random pieces and even inside the tire carcass it’s self

NOT GOOD !!!

I paid extra for these wheels as an option !

Man, that's just awful. Is your truck under warranty? I hope Ford can fix this. I've always been partial to painted alloys.

This is the very definition of a defect in material or workmanship. They will try and pass it off as an appearance issue and not want to cover it. Short of the rim rusting, chrome should never separate from properly preped steel.

1 mile out of warranty and it’s your dime. Well known issue for years. Well known on the Ford forums.

It’s not chrome. Poly vinyl discharge...fake chrome plastic coating.

OP, did the window sticker say your optional wheels were “chrome”, or was it something made up like “bright finish”?

I’d be annoyed if that was my vehicle.

PVD stands for Physical Vapour Deposition. It's a great process done in a special chamber and can't peel off, so the process on these wheels is not PVD.

The sticker reads
Chrome PVD Aluminum Wheels-18

And yes ! I’m very [censored] !!!
I’m very picky about my vehicles

Been a known issue now for years. It was yet another reason I chose the wheels that came on my f150 to not deal with that... sorry!

Not 100% pleased with some made in Mexico Ford wheels I recently acquired. They had what I consider a ton of weights, all near the valve stem. Replaced tires with new and same deal. Tons of weights near the valve stem. Ride and look good but, just seems odd to me.

This is a first for me....I’ve owned several with this type wheel and never experienced this problem
