tough to say without seeing it. can you post up a couple pics? you can touch up areas with PD but if its real bad you might want to redo the whole wheel.

Body filler, sand paper, spray paint and an afternoon with drying time usually does the trick

The body filler is more permanent than the wheel color lol...

i had the same problem i just got tired of taking the wheels off and redoing it you might as well have them powder coated if you like the color. you can get it done for about 65 a wheel and have no worries on the trail car wash or whatever.

True, but there is no going back once you've painted them. Plasti dip is used to get a good idea of how your wheels would look painted black. I still have my factory wheels and I like plasti dip so that I can go back to factory chrome if need be.

If you have no intention on wanting the factory finish, then by all means, paint the SOB's!

Powder coating? Talk about a PIA. Remove the wheels, remove the tires, get them powder coated and then mounted and balanced. No thanks PD is easy, cheap and looks great and touch up is a breeze.

Now if i bought a spare set, then that a different story.
