31K miles on this rim and have never seen this before. I can't point to any cause. I do use Ride On sealant, but it usually sticks to the tire and rarely if ever see it on the rim.







Strange that it's happening in so many different places.

I don't know how viscous Ride On is but when the bike is parked any of it that is on the top side of the tire is liable to fall down on the wheel unless it's very, very thick.

Not only is it very thick but it skins over. I've never found a drop on my wheels when I change tires.

No, I don't recall ever seeing it on the wheel either. Stuff really sticks to the tire. I don't believe I can blame the flaking on contact with the sealant. I really don't know caused it.

I would guess bad prep work from the factory for the paint? :confused:
