Alloy wheels covered by BMW warranty?

Post by woolley11 » Wed May 05, 2021 8:42 pm

My G31 Touring is coming up to 3 years old

I’ve noticed the lacquer on 3 of the 4 alloys is starting to lift and alloys are discolouring around those areas.

It’s in for a recall this week so was going to mention it to them.

Should the wheels come under the corrosion warranty? 🤔

They replaced the rear wheels on our previous F25 X3 when the clearcoat started to lift around the centre caps - think it was between 2 & 3 years old when they were replaced

Result - tool car in last week and they are replacing 3 out the 4 wheels. To be honest the 4th wheel hasn’t a mark on it so fair comment.
