The outsides are painted nicely, but just several inches in and they are "splattered" with paint. The rear facing part of the wheel didn't have any paint at all - just bare aluminum!
It really surprises me that they would cut corners like that. I was planning to buy another set of wheels for the track, but for the money, I can get real quality wheels that are probably lighter and finished properly.
End of rant.
I'd be at a dealership if all 4 of my rims were like that. Maybe someone can check there's to see if they have the similar issue. Can you say warranty claim?
