The period of warranty for chrome plating is 84 months and for gold plating, 90 days from the date of purchase. The plating warranty covers adhesion only (peeling) of chrome/gold from the wheel. This warranty does not cover staining or oxidation. Surface rust (pitting) can be prevented by proper care and is not covered by this warranty. This warranty is extended to the original purchaser and is in lieu of all other warranties expressed or implied including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

 

Wheel Concepts Industries, LLC reserves the right to make changes or improvements to design, specifications, or materials without incurring any obligation to make the same or similar changes in products previously sold.

WCI CORE RETURN & REFUND POLICY

 

Wheel Concepts Industries, LLC cores must be returned within 10 days of invoice (if delinquent, billing charges may be applied at stated value on invoice). Core returns must be the same make & model, diameter and width. Core returns cannot be chrome plated, previously chrome plated, out of round (bends/flat spots), previously repaired, have curb damage, corrosion or be reconditioned. Customer is subject to all repair and/or replacement charges at the discretion of Wheel Concepts Industries, LLC.

WHEEL MAINTENANCE & CARE

 

CHROME PLATED WHEELS: Wash wheels thoroughly each week, using mild soap and water. Wax the wheels regularly using only wax made specifically for wheels (such as Wheel Wax, sold by Wheel Concepts Industries, LLC that has been proven safe on chrome). Avoid road salt and car washes that use caustic, phosphate or acid cleaners. NEVER use any liquid cream or paste cleaners.

 

If a wheel becomes chipped, it is essential that the wheel be repaired. This is to prevent moisture from getting underneath the chrome and causing peeling or discoloration. NEVER use a “pound on wheel-weight” as this will chip or crack the finish, causing future problems.

 

DO NOT ALLOW BREAK DUST TO ACCUMULATE, because it is very caustic and will damage a wheel very quickly.

Wheel Concepts Industries, LLC recommends removal of chrome plated wheels and custom wheels during the winter months where salted roads and extreme cold temperatures and unknown hazards prevail.
