mpcv, thank you very much for your addition. I have one wheel (Rota) that looked like curb rash and gave me a heart attack - 1) wheels bought new less than a year ago. 2) wheels NEVER curbed! 3) wheel that looked curbed was driver side front... kinda hard to curb! Anyway, a close look showed the peeling clearcoat to be the culprit... I'm going to mark this thread for future reference!
