View Full Version : Brake Caliper Scratches on 2001 Wheel

03-21-02, 07:48 PM
While washing my car this week I noticed the passenger front wheel has a 1 inch wide scratch all around the inside where the brake caliper is. I don't know what caused it and I don't see anything lodged in there now. The scatches can barely be felt but are very visible to me. They are polished 2001 wheels.

Any similar experiences of wheel damage?

What's a good way to fix the wheel?

Could this have happened when the tires were mounted on the wheels? Were the wheels an option on the original window sticker (and invoice) or were they dealer installed? Did you have the tires changed?

Are there any marks on the outside of the caliper indicating something could have gotten wedged between it and the wheel?
