    My car

    ...if I can comment of David Macbeth's experience with his wheels, the same happened to the wheels on our car. This has less to do with perceived Kia poor quality parts and more to do with the diamond cut alloys which are becoming fashionable again (I had an AX GT in 1991 with them). However, they are prone to salt corrosion getting under the lacquer and after a few harsh winters many an Audi, BMW or Mercedes with these type of wheels will look much the same. The big difference is that when the Kia dealer replaced my set, so long as the corrosion wasn't down to obvious damage sustained they would continue to replace them until the car was 7 years old. I don't believe there is another manufacturer out there that would do that, quality or not. Even so, the lacquer on the new wheels appears thicker, and the "cut" part of the wheel is slightly further away from the edge of the rim, so I expect they will last well - but if not, back to Kia for another new set!
