I almost purchased a Pontiac Grand Am in 2004 but nixed it when I noticed that the wheels were plastic covers that were chrome plated. They looked good but feeling the back side revealed their material. I really nixed it in favor of the Monte.
As far as acid or any caustic substance attacking the wheels, the chrome would look bubbled and have a soft edge. If the chrome peeled off (mainly due to the fact that chrome is brittle compared to plastic or steel and cannot bend) the edges would be sharp and you may even see the edges peeled up. Now, is somebody saying that the underlying surface (under the chrome) is being attacked and breaking the bond between the body and the plating? Then it would need a point of entry. A scratch, a pin hole,....Ask the tech what kind of acid.
