After taking the Aero wheels off and putting on new wheels with winter tires, I cleaned the Aero wheels and found that the Aero Wheel Covers have damaged my wheels. There is a plastic rib underneath the cover that seems to be rubbing on the top of the wheel leaving a rough black mark. Some of my wheels are worse than others, but they all have the same black scuff marks. I have a picture of one of the spots here: https://imgur.com/a/GrM32zI
This is only one spot, but each wheel has at minimum three spots like this. One of the wheels has much darker spots than this one too. This is the only one I did not have stored away yet, as it has a large paint chip that also needs to be taken care of.
Has anyone else noticed this type of scuffing on the aero wheels?
If this is happening to all aero wheels, this is a large oversight in the development of the covers and how they attach to the wheel.
