Vossen matte graphite finish

Anyone else have this finish?

I got my wheels in December and the finish is already coming off in spots. I've emailed vossen but got no response yet. I was hoping to get some touch up paint to buy some time.

Just curious if anyone else has experienced the same or maybe mine are just a fluke. I've only driven about 1500 miles on them so I need to figure something out if I want to keep these for long.

I was just looking into matte graphite Cv4s today..

I was told today that Vossen backs the finish for 5 years. As long as it isn't curb rashes or similar user caused wear.

Try calling them, I spoke with a rep over the phone in less than 5 minutes.

I have the same issue. I bought matching touch up point and it does the trick. Still frustrating though. Minor blemishes appear and looks like from road dirt or sand. Let me know what vossen says.

I haven't heard back from them yet. Will try again when I get back from vacation.

Mine also looks like it is from road sand, etc. The shop that I got them from was shocked when I showed them and the owner was going to reach out to vossen as well.

I got my wheels from carid.com Complete nightmare. They arrived damaged (scratched lips) Lugs didn't fit. Tpms did not work. The service was terrible. Wish me luck if I need to get them refinished through the vendor. Hopefully I can go to vossen directly. Anyone reading this avoid carid by all means!

I got my wheels in early November 2012. When did you get yours? May have been a bad batch?

Early December, vossen has reached out to me now so we'll see. I was thinking the same thing. The finish doesn't seem to have bonded. It's like a step was missed in the process

Sorry to ask an off topic question, but are these quality issue commen with Vossen??

If I get the polished/clear finish on black, will I encounter similar issues?

Very rare issue. Sometimes due to road conditions, debris etc it can hit the wheel in chip. If there is excessive chipping then we are happy to investigate. The owners have been contacted and our warranty team is on the job! Thanks
