painted wheels

I own 2 Mercedes a 1998 ML 320 and a 2003 c230 Kompressor, the Painted wheels on both vehicles are peeling, large pieces on all the wheels, has anyone else experienced this problem ? My local Mercedes Service Rep. says he has never seen this before, and it certainly couldnt be a Mercedes problem

Many Mercedes owners manual recommend washing wheels weekly.

Brake dust, etc.

My new to me 2005 CLK has terrible paint chipping, peeling on the wheels. Some of the ugliest things I've ever seen. As I'm not the original owner I don't know the history of the wheel maintenance so I could never say what they've been exposed to, but I am witnessing something wrong as well.
