Paint on wheels

Does everybody's wheels look like this? They aren't black where the lugs are.

That's done by design , had it been painted like the rest of the wheel , it will chip the paint out every time one tight up the lugs and would expose the metal behind

Mine look like that too. Check the inside of the wheels. They are very littley sprayed too. It's called being cheap!

Will have to check out the 14s.

If they are pc'd that would be a very good argument in getting them coated under warranty. Otherwise I am going to have mine coated this winter. My car is an absolute garage queen, but the wheels scuff so easily when cleaning. Terrible to paint a wheel these days.

The lack of paint on my wheels does not effect the performance of my car in any way....and no one notices....and they are going to get banged up eventually anyway....so I do not worry about it.
