im seeing this a lot with some of the "hyped" wheel company out there, i think when i do rims im sticking to BBS/OZ!

No joke about using acid. I would def assume some chemical was used on there. I have had chrome lips for nearly 2 years, and all I used to wash was soap and water. I NEVER had ANY issues like that. OP, Im not saying you used some strong chemicals, Im not sure if you wash your car or have it washed by others. But if its washed by others, Im pretty confident they used a chemical that reacted with the chrome.
