I cannot figure out what is wrong, because the wheels have been painfully and thoroughly washed once a week since I purchased the car. The rest of the wheel everywhere else is perfect.
I took the car to my dealership. They tried some compound on it with no success. The dealer took pictures to forward to Chevrolet to see what they have to say.
Correct me if I am wrong, but these are painted/clear coated aluminum wheels, correct?
This is happening on my front wheels as well. They are discolored in the area around the lug nuts. I thought it was because of the heat from the heavy braking. Now that I see that others have this same problem will take it to the dealer to document the condition. Thanks for bringing it to everyone's attention.
