ZL1 Owners with Black Wheels

I would like to get some input from other ZL1 owners who purchased their cars with the black wheels. Specifically I am interested in knowing if you have noticed what I would consider to be a less than ideal paint coverage on the wheels. Assuming they are painted and not powder coated. Specifically as you are washing your wheels, what does the area behind the spokes look like? Can you detect a significant and noticeable decrease in paint coverage in those areas?

Thanks

I noticed on the outer rim of the tire, it is almost a greenish color and the back of the spokes thins out some. I took them off the car to get a coat of Zaino on them and noticed, but you don't notice any of that when they are on the car.
