22" Black Double Helix Rims with "wear" issues.

Hello, I am new to the Forum and need some help, advice, opinions.

I have a 2017 F-Pace R Sport with 22" Black Double Helix Rims. Ordered the Vehicle in January 2016 and took ownership in June 2016. Vehicle has 13,000 miles on it and the Black is wearing of off the inside of all four rims. Vehicle is currently at the dealer. Dealer is saying Jag will not cover because this is a "wear" issue do to normal driving. Since when do $4000 dollar rims wear?!? Its so bad that in 2 years from now I guarantee the paint will be completely worn off. It has to be one of two things, or both. The aerodynamics of the vehicle with the 22" rims/tires is causing a sand blasting effect on the back rims. Or the paint is bad. Rims are wearing like a rocker panel would wear. Anyways, does anyone else have this issue or have have heard of problems with these rims. I take excellent care of this vehicle and is only on paved roads. Couple pictures are attached. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm seeing similar chips on my FE Double Helix rims. Although, I'm not using them now since they are just my winter setup. I see more issues on the rims on the left side of my F-Pace and I think it's due to running on the interstates that have Jersey dividers on the left of the fast lane with no shoulder. I think there is a lot of sand and small rocks moving around due to that limited space and that is what bounces off the rims creating those small chips.

I plan on getting them resprayed, probably leveraging electrostatic process of some type.

I agree with you on the cause. However, I have never had issues like this with any other vehicle I have ever owned. I expect these rims to be of much better quality. I am going to demand the dealership replace them, see how far that gets me.

Wow... there so bad I thought that was dust covering the wheels. This is why I would never own black wheels, they look great but if I pad $3500 for those wheels and they looked like that after a year id be pis*ed

Yes, I am pissed. I have a 2013 jeep wrangler with Black Rims and no issues with them. Jaguar should be ashamed of a product they produced doing this.

ELLKAY, your wheels are really bad, mine only have 3 or 4 nicks per wheel. So I think I would complain to the dealership as well if I were you. Be prepared for questions though. The Jersey divider issue is one, but the one they will probably ask is do you drive on gravel roads regularly. I think that probably could do that as well.

Car is at dealer ship. Told them I don't want it back unless it has new rims. I have a loaner from them, I will keep it until they fix mine. This could get ugly.
