What does this mean?
Diamond cut alloy wheels can be prone to damage. As with any alloy wheel, nothing can protect them from brushes with kerbs or other objects. Diamond cut alloy wheels tend to require more TLC than painted or powder coated alloys. This is because as the lacquer ages, gets chipped or is stripped over time by harsh weather, road conditions, salt and acidic wash chemicals. Water and residue typically then finds its way underneath the lacquer. Once the lacquer surface is damaged, the alloy metal underneath is prone to corrosion and this may well lift the lacquer. If this happens and the alloy metal is exposed it may start to turn grey and perhaps powdery. Corrosion may also start to creep under the lacquer, this may leave the appearance of white ‘worm-like’ marks under the lacquer.
