Picked up my Charger HC last week and just noticed this today.
One of the Black LowGloss wheels is stained /etched on a few spokes & inside lug nut pocket.
Tried cleaning with some water & car wash, but didn't help.
After looking very close, It looks like it's etched in the finish.
Anyone else have this?

I guess no one has. I know I haven't. If it makes you feel any better I got my Hellcat and 3 days later decided to wax it. Found a 3" crease and 1" of that missing paint near the bottom of driver's door. Of course dealership says it was "perfect" when I picked it up.

Felt like throwing up.

I know on one of my other vehicles (not a Dodge) there was a lot of issues with aluminum wheels being etched when customers used aftermarket rim cleaners. The OEM didn't advise using anything more than soap and water to clean the rims, I used rim cleaner and luckily the dealer replaced all 4 my rims under warranty. Dont know if this applies here.
