Marks on wheels

Post by ash1966 » Sun Oct 07, 2018 12:58 pm

Hi...i have had my niro 3 for 6 days now from new and love it. Today was the first day the sun had shone on it..!!!..and disappointingly I've noticed multiple patches of what look like water marks on all 4 alloy's. The wheels look perfect when not in the sun - it was cloudy when i picked up the car - the marks just don't go away when washing gently with car shampoo. I'll be taking it back under warranty of course but fear for the longevity of diamond cut alloy's during salt covered roads in the winter up here in Northumberland. Is there any history of alloy wheel issues on new niro's ?? I've uploaded pics to show the issue..

Your wheels look quite bad for a car you have only had a few days.

I sold my original Niro 2 wheels and tyres and replaced them with conventional alloys (German made by Dezent) many months ago..

I can see no corrosion type marks like those on your's - just a few tiny grit impact marks.
