SQ5 Paint problems with 21" wheels

Hi all
So I have had my car 9 months and the wheels were in very good condition then the paint started to flake and come off. I was told its the salt doing it from the roads.
So inhave had them put a machine and had them grinded down scratch and repainted. The issue I have now is it looks like there is something under the paint that is coming through the paint and 3 of the wheels. Is there anything I can do to stop the wheels from doing this?

Looks like a dealership forecourt/mobile alloy wheel refurbishment issue. Best get a professional refurbishment and this company I'd 100% recommend: https://jpalloys.co.uk/

Yup def looks like bad prep of the wheels. Had this a while back with a dealer and got them to pay a dedicated alloy refurb company to sort them out

As above, get refurbed properly, get dealer to pay.

I noticed the same with my RS6. Was never happy with the 2 front wheels when cleaning them & after 16 months of ownership they were getting worse so i just got my car back on Friday after having all 4 totally refurbed. The guy who did them confirmed the front 2 had been ''smart repaired'' so i decided to go the whole way & have them all done to get a perfect paint/diamond cut finish. Have to say they look like a brand new set & loads of people who have seen them have commented on how good they now look.
