Re: Stone damage on rear doors

Here's a pic I took of the flare coming up, but if you look closely, you can see my paint turning pink. This was at 10k miles... I now have 20k miles, and it looks twice as bad.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1413688078.539848.jpg

Re: Stone damage on rear doors

Count me in for the same issue STCjpr, only difference is on a white SRT - it shows up as black chips. I was just thinking the other day how ridiculous this is, i have 14k - and the fenders look like they have 200k on them. Have never driven on a dirt road even once either.

Love my Jeep - but the fender flares leave a lot to be desired in the fit/finish area as well - already had to have one replaced as it was falling off after 5k.

Re: Stone damage on rear doors

No- the stock Pirellis are sticky as oufck, so stones stick to them. Bought some new Yokohamas, had the rockers painted, 5k miles later, no stone chips!
