My experience with these rims that start flaking is, when one starts it isn't long before the others start doing it. I found a complete set of almost brand new rims at an auto wrecker that were a third of the brand new price and they were perfect. So before you spend big bucks on brand new rims try an auto wrecker, you might be surprised.
