They are also the easiest rims to clean. Far easier than regular aluminum.

Noticed that a lot of people are experiencing problems with Edge rims. I purchased a "certified" 2011 Edge and at the time purchased a tire and wheel insurance policy. My rims started bubbling and peeling. I submitted a claim under the policy and it was denied as Ford deemed it cosmetic and after appeals their reply stuck. The service manager agreed with me that it should be covered. Insurance called it collision damage and agreed to cover it under $500 Dollar deductible. The result was replacement but still cost me $500 dollars. I will not purchase any car with such wheels and then it will not be a Ford. After 23 years Ford I just say Bye Bye.

Yes James this is a tragedy because rims and even tires should not have to be a worry to you. Ford has gotten away with so many goofs since 2008 (transmissions, staining seats and poor My sync) I have only been a loyal fan for 5 years but the last 3 Fords have been disappointing. I too am looking elsewhere after this current lease is up. Sorry you had to learn this lesson too.
#35 of 36 Chrome Rim Cleaning
Jun 04, 2013 (3:26 am)
Just bought a 2013 Edge Eco-boost. Had a 2009 Escape with those chrome covers and waited a long time to clean. I felt it would take too long to clean them real good. Based on the cleaning of those I assume one should clean the chrome often and with nothing abrasive. Is this true and what is a recommended cleaner?

They are an easy clean on the Edge. I use mild soap and water and a sponge. Rinse clean and that is it. I find that brake dust does not build up to any degree on these rims.
