Chrome wheels peeling, especially around valve stems, producing minute leaks in air pressure of tires, despite replacement of valve stems. Have contacted dealership where the car was purchased with no response.

: the contact stated, on 3/1/05 all tires were low. Upon inspection by the service dealer, corrosion was found on the rims of all four tires, causing the seal between the tire and rims to be broken. The tires were removed and all tires and rims were cleaned and placed back onto the vehicle. The manufacturer was alerted. The manufacturer determined there was no liability on the manufacturer because the vehicle's warranty was expired. Updated 11/3/2006 -

Tires fail to hold/maintain air pressure..chrome rims peeling, lose air pressure from 35 lbs down to 15 lbs in a week period of time. Dealer agrees there is a problem, retail tire dealers have seen numerous problem rims. Manufacturer will not resolve the problem. This is unsafe.. can cause roll over..blow outs.

Had tires changed at dealer. After tire change, two of the tires began leaking. After several trips to the dealer to have them checked, dealer finally decided that the chrome-plated rims were corroded and had to be replaced. Now, after having two more tires replace, the new tires are leaking and I am afraid that I will have to pay for two more rims.

Consumer states: Has problems with the rims that are chrome plated and deteriorating. Also, the valve stems are deteriorating. Goodyear claims GM is having an issue with chrome plated rims. It is causing the valve stems just to malfunction. Dealer has done one rim replacement under warranty, said it was a courtesy. Stems were leaking from corrosion of rim after rim replacement. Goodyear 59tbswas touring 205/55R16 89T.
