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.

I doo clean the wheels on both of these vehicles on a regular basis and use maguieres wheel cleaner for painted wheels. Ihave had many other brands of cars over the years and never saw any pealing problems a bad as this, although I live in a climate ta

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.
