Paint on wheels oxidizing

I have a 2014 Brutale 800 and have noticed the black paint on my wheels appears to be oxidizing. It's almost like the wheel is flat black. About 4 months ago I had the rear tire changed. The old weight was pulled off and I noticed the paint under the weight is glossy. I have the same issue with the front wheel as well. I don't think I've used anything harsh on wheels. Anyone else with this problem?

My white rear wheel was going cream. It was the exhaust causing it to discolour. Just have to use mucoff on it every now and then.

I believe VW have a fix for that kind of thing.

I have a 2014 Brutale 800 and my wheels have always been matt black. They're definitely not gloss black.

Thanks squid. I was just shocked at the difference between the paint under the removed weight and the exposed wheel. Not a big deal, just looked like it was much glossier under the weight.

That gloss could be adhesive.

Tobysdad,

Same thing with the wheels on my 2013 B800, they have been dull for quite a while, now really looking poor, I have tried lots of cleaning and polishing but no lasting effect.

Only answer is a re-paint, so both going off to the paint shop over the xmas/new year period.

I'm considering having my wheels dipped this winter when I replace the tyres. For £70 a wheel they dip them and they come out looking like carbon fibre wheels.

Thanks Jimbo for confirming what I'm seeing. I too have tried all sorts of polishes to no avail. I may paint them myself.
