It's not just the Camaro wheels that suffer. When I bought my Grand Sport, it came with the $2000 chrome wheel option (didn't really want chrome wheels but the other options and overall price were right). I was shocked to find that the barrels had rough primer as the factory finish. This is on a very open and large wheel where the barrel is highly visible. Looked horrible and was tough to keep clean. I ended up sanding the barrels smooth and painting them.

I guess I should plan to do the same to my 1LE when I get it.

Kinda disappointing but I guess wheel barrels aren't a priority for GM or their wheel manufacturers.

On a related note, the rotor hats on my Grand Sport were just primered as well and looked like turd. What is the finish on the Camaro rotor hats?
