How long should a powder coat last on steel wheels? Mine have been done less than a year ago and already there is rust starting to come through on them, one more so than the others?

Had mine Chrome Powder coated 16 months ago , and no issues of that type .. is the rust just random , or in same places ?? Any chips/scratches unnoticed ?? If its coming through from underneath , I,d go back , and ask why ...

The worst one is around rim edge and odd bits on holes, its not major rust and the coating is still on, when I give them a good wash it comes off but after a week or so and a few soakings it returns.

They havent been kerbed!! im a very careful driver! Its not like flakey rust its like a light coating.
I didn't expect them to look super fresh for ever but thought a powder coat would last longer.
