I was washing my wifes Heritage Edition 300C the other day and noticed that the wheels have alot of what I call pitting
on the outer lip of the wheel.
The car has about 20,000 mi. on it. We've had it about 1year.
I'm sure theres nothing I can do about it since the warranty for this ran out at 12,000mi. I believe thats the manufactures warranty?:confused:
I told my wife, we'll probably have to buy some summer wheels and run the ones she has now for the winter. Makes me mad cause I would've thought the wheels would hold up better than that. :(
The Aluminum wheels on my 00 Silverado look better than these,
condition wise. Chrysler must use cheaper aluminum.:biggrin:
I'll get off the soapbox now.:rolleyes:

pretty sure the factory warranty is much longer then 1 year/12000miles
Doesn't hurt to ask, bur for the '05 models they (DCX) eventually limited coverage to 1 yr. 12k miles for replacement of the pitting issue.

Haven't had any problems like that with our H.E., although I do my best to keep it washed and rinsed, particularly in the winter. Almost 30k miles now and not yet 2 years old (later this month).

My first 300C had this problem, wheels replaced. This was a fairly common problem at that time, late 2004. The replacement wheels were new not reconditioned......guess what? Replacement had the same issue. Did not complain to dealer since I was trading for my 2007 300C.

Hoped Chrysler got it right after that!

The wheels should be covered under the 3yr/36 mo warranty.

The items that are only covered for 12 months are listed on page 6 of the Warranty booklet. The wheels are not on this list.

F. When It Ends
The Basic Limited Warranty lasts for 36 months from the
date it begins or for 36,000 miles on the odometer,
whichever occurs first. But the following items are
covered only for 12 months or for 12,000 miles on the
odometer, whichever occurs first:
• brakes (rotors, pads, linings, and drums);
• wiper blades;
• clutch discs;
• windshield and rear window; and
• wheel alignment and wheel balancing
