I have scuffed both right side rims after only 1700 miles. Figured out the "problem".

Besides me being unused to the width of the PP, having had three CR-V's, it is the low profile tires.

This seems to happen often, I went through a Starbucks drive thru and drove on the curb pulling away and thought for sure that ‘was going to leave a mark’ (Tommy Boy reference ?) but I was fine, this time...

would going with the chrome wheels rather than the painted wheels hide scuff marks better?
Depends, I picked up a few cans of plastic-dip from Amazon last night and there was a pic of a chrome like wheel and it looked bad before - who knows they could have hit the curb really hard ;)

I swapped out the stock Continental tires for Continental Terrain Contact A/T tires at the dealer when new. The A/T's have a rim guard molded into the two ply sidewalls to prevent damage to the wheels. Our first demo Passport had curb rash on one of the front wheels! In 4500 miles I'm very happy with the tire change, and mileage does not seem to be affected. The road to my house has been a muddy mess this spring, with mud holes in multiple locations. So far I'm impressed with how the tires, and the Passport, has been able to negotiate through. (Bad enough to drag bottom on several occasions)
