I'd never have diamond cut wheels if I have the choice. Every time I see some that are more than 2 or 3 years old they have "white worm" and once you get that, that's it. I've heard of several getting diamond cut wheels refurbished and the white worm comes back within months.
You say rotate the wheels but the tyres on mine are different front and back with a different sidewall profile, not sure why so can you move between front and back?.
Enyaq 80 Suite, Race Blue, Panoramic Sunroof, 20" Vega Alloys and a silly overpriced rubber mat for the boot.

Ordered April fools day 21, Received 13th August 21.

Yep. These started appearing about 4 years after we got the car (new) - at a time we were still looking after it properly. Now 10 years old.

My Dad has had 2 Qashqai's in the last 5 years and this happened on both within 2 - 3 years of being brand new :cry: .
The other guy I know who had the problem was also in a Nissan and several in the Ford owners club have complained.

Looks great-I have the same car, but with Lounge interior which I love. The 19" alloys looks great too.

Quartz grey is a fine color. Looks very vivid in all environments. Wonder if I should have gone for it instead of Arctic silver

Not only are the tyres different front to rear on the 20” option but the rims are also very different. The extra ‘meat’ in the rear alloys is all outboard of the hubs. It does indeed mean that diagonal and front to rear rotation is not possible.

According to the Skoda PDF manual ( page 222) tyres on 132kw cars (60) should be rotated every 10,000 km, however, not on the 150kw (80) as front and rear tyres are different sizes. Have a 60 Suite with 20 inch Vega alloys and Bridgestone tyres which appear to me to the same size front and rear.

I have just noticed your car has black trim around the windows so it is slightly different to mine
