Clearcoat coming off of wheels

I have aftermarket wheels and I have noticed that the clearcoat is coming off the lip of the wheels. Is it fixable by a good body shop or not fixable at all? I have the shelby razor wheels so if anyone has the same wheels with the same problem then I would like to know.

Also the wheels have the 4 or 5 fake bolts that go between each spoke right by the lip of the wheel. For some reason those are coming out too. I have lost about 5 off of one wheel and I am wondering if there is a way to get more of those or do I just have bad luck or what?

They most likely won't mess with it.
To fix it right they have to be stripped and polished and recoated.
Your better off getting some stock wheels that you like, used!
Look at the ones they have here

Yes i am constantly washing my car and wiping my wheels off all the time. Not sure what u mean by track pads though..... I love the wheels for sure. They look great on the car and give it a killer look and stylish look IMO. The only problem I have with them is the clearcoat peeling off in spots and the fake bolts around the lip are coming out. Im not sure if im the only one with this problem but I also drive the car every single day. Where as alot of people with 20" wheels seem to have show cars or drive them on the weekends. When I say drive I mean I drive it. I drive about 200 miles a week along with autocross events and recently finding that I like drifting too so im doing that also. I dont think that the fake bolts coming out is a common problem though. I believe it was a "luck of the draw" kind of deal for me. Its all good though. Like I said the car gets driven everyday and normal wear and tear comes into play in my situation. Maybe this will help you in your decision on the wheels. Also im not sure on what most people do to clean their wheels personally but I use window cleaner out of a spray can like Eagle 1 20/20 or Invisible Glass or something like that. I spay it on there and wipe it off with a microfiber rag. Leaves no streaks and not harmful for the wheels. Also works fantastic on chrome and polished wheels too.
