This is going to sound random but has anyone had their stock OEM wheels paint bubble and peel off? I just had new wheels put on my WRX and the shop took off the old wheels dismounted the tires to pull the TPMS sensors for the new wheels. In the process of dismounting the tires 3 of the 4 wheels paint cracked and peeled off along the edge and outer face of the wheel. This is a reputable shop and they know what they are doing so to me it seems like a defect but when I called two different dealers they said the wheels would need to be remounted for them to do a warranty claim and that just bringing them by in a truck for them to inspect isn't acceptable. What a PITA.... sorry venting.
