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.
