Every Tesla rim I see here in L.A are all scratched up and looking so dirty. I thought it was only because the 21" are low profiles and dig on pot holes, but almost all the 19" rim/ wheels I see are all scratched up and chipped as well. And dirty! The only time they weren't scratched up was when the car looked like it was purchased recently. (I look for the little box shape/autopilot radar in the front of the car to know if it's the new model.)
My CRZ honda has 17" rims but smaller wheels as well, so proportionally very similar to the 19" Model S Rims...and yet my rims have very little scratches and chips...quite few in fact, and I've had my car for 5 years.
Is there something I don't know about these Tesla rims as to why they get so scratched up and chipped so easily? Makes the car look cheap. Esp when they're dirty!
