If its the coating ,are you leaving the tire blackener on your rims because I think that stuff is petroleum based and over time may be pitting the clear coating.
Just a thought.
I dont even let the stuff get on my paint.I shield it with a peice of card board.

mine are doing the same thing and the dealer told me he had to get the gm rep from somewhere to check them!!! he said it could take up to 3 months and told me not to change my tires cause they would think its because of the tire machine.so i had no choice to change them but got them done at the dealer so if something happens it will be the dealer's fault
