This weekend I did was turning around in a cul-de-sac and brushed a curb. I was not sure if I was going to make it so I was creeping. I heard the dreaded scrape and stopped, backed up and finished my turn. After stopping I got out to inspect. I knew there would be a little rash and there was. What I did not expect is to see that the wheels are painted. I thought they were anodized or coated. They have what looks like 2 coats. The first is a gloss black base with a gunmetal over top. Well, the gun metal does not adhere to the black very well because big chips came off that were FAR worse than the rash damage. I am still pissed about it, but I have no one else to blame but myself. This gives me a good reason to powder coat them black I guess. Will upload pics later.
