Default 19 inch Rotor Rim problem

Hello,

New Audi A4 owner here. As in bought a used 2014 A4 a week ago. Car has the black optics package with the 19 inch 5 rotor wheels. 32k miles. The car was from texas and sold at aution then to me to make it's way to Iowa. Today was 23 degrees F and I walked out to see the clear coat has spider-ed like a broken window. Has anyone seen this before?

On the back side of the blades, one says made in Germany and another says Audi plus some numbers. Dealership sent pics to Audi but no one can tell me what this is.

I'm guessing that wheel was repaired at some point by a "wheel guy" and as part of the repair the wheel was re-cleared and the clear coat has failed for some reason. Many wheel guys are great, some do it out of a van on the dealers lot. Lack of prep, surface contamination, or bad paint could cause the problem you see there.

Sorry to hear. There is a good wheel guy in Grimes/Johnston I have used before. PM me if you want his number.
