help~ rim deteriorating

i have voks gram lite, and for some reason, the outer part of the rim is coming off. What i mean is that the white paint comes off from the rim, and i see the metal under it. It seems like i hav scratched it from somewhere. I know its not while I'm parking the car. I take real caution, and park about 2ft from the sidewalk. If anyone has experienced similar problem, and know the solution, please~ help me preserve my rather expensive rim.

Have you do a tire change on these rim?? the paint might got strip off during the installation.

Ohter possibiliy, rock or small piece of wood hit the rim while you are on freeway. rock will leave a deep mark (happen on my rim). But the way your paint is coming off, it's not likely, but just throwing out idea.

why dont you resand the outer rim lightly, and give it a new paintjob....cause from what i see, I can only see that the ridge of your rims are losing paint...nothing else..
