Was rinsing off the car and noticed some of the coating on my rims had small flaws in it. yes they are flaws it was not self inflicted, for proof of which, other than me knowing im not retarded and didnt curb it, the tire is completeley unscaved. and there happeds to be a "tire hair" (technical term) right above the spot in question and it to is unscaved. they are only 4-5 dot sized flaws. but #1 the car is only 2 weeks old. and #2 that Ish will spread.

Did you get the maintenance package. If you did, just go get a new wheel.

As long as the metal isn't marred, there shouldn't be an issue getting it replaced. Just don't wait before letting the dealer know about it.

It looks pretty scratched dude. You better ship me all 4 of your rims and just buy a new set at this point.

I'll gladly take those off your hands. They don't seem right for you anymore. We're both in Texas so, whenever you're ready...
