Spider Monkey Poor Finish

Had the car for 3 days, I just cleaned the wheels as the brake dust was bad, and noticed the rear SRT rims had poor quality finish.

Has anyone else noticed, or had anything like this? I figure I should be able to get them replaced fairly easily, just wondering if this has happened a lot or is this a new problem?

Re: Spider Monkey Poor Finish

Did you try a bug and tar remover?

That looks like something got on them. I would try to use a tar remover (safe for wheels) and see what happens. May also be able to use some goo gone. Just make sure the wheels are cool.

Re: Spider Monkey Poor Finish

Let us know how the dealer handles it. I have the same rims. Bought the extra warranty on the wheels, tires, windshield and door dings... was hoping I would not need it. hmmm
