    No problems in ~600 miles here. The detailer coated the wheels with a ceramic protectant, and he didn't mention any issues.

    I'm surprised no one else mentioned any issues. I have a new set (only on the car for ~ 1 month), and I have a couple of chips where the spokes meet the rim on one, and some "pinholes" on another (looks like silver overspray). I didn't check them before installing, nor have a curbed them or hit anything. I'm ordering the touchup paint to try out.

    Two sets on two different cars with 60k miles between the two. The only issue I have ever had was one time tapping a curb (my fault) but both sets still look new ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
