Roughness, corrosion, white spots on my car's rims.the brake pads are causing this problem. I am looking to have the stock rims replaced. Along with the stock brake pads that came with the car. I know of all most 200 cars that have these issues with their rims. The problem is the stock brake pads are eating away at the special finish that is on the rim. Vwoa does not want to do anything about it. More info here: forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=569321.
