Clearcoat off of wheels are peeling off horrible looking

I just recently purchased a 2006 nissan 350z which I love tremendously but i have not even had the car a week and the clearcoat off the wheels is peeling away and they look really bad... I have gotten 3 estimates and they range from $400 dollars to $575 to fix them right and I could purchase a new set for that much, but I shouldn't have to because the car only has 9000 miles on it and the wheels make for a really bad eye sore... is there anything that can be done to help me out and not make my new car look so bad??? Please

1. To repair the clear coat; rub your wheels with lacquer thinner and fine scotch brite. 2. Wipe the residue with a clean soft rag dosed with lacquer thinner. 3. Wait fifteen minutes and respray with clear acrylic lacquer or clear urethane. Note: This process will work with both painted and unpainted wheels. Total cost invested; $30 to $40 dollars.

Hope this was of some help to you.
