Some people remove the black plastic guard that attaches to the hub, sort of a wiper. That helps with the scratching and gouging but leaves the disc and caliper more vulnerable, there are a few threads about this in the forum.

Yeah, unfortunately this problem is a fact of life on the Mavs. My rear wheels look exactly the same. Looks ugly as hell, but it's more of a cosmetic issue than a real problem. I'm going to 14 or 15's on mine very soon.

I don't care about the scratches, its the noise the 2" crushed rocks make beating the crap out of everything.

I've seen a guy catch a big rock just right and blow a 3 inch gap in his rim...the ride was done that day. I probably will go to a larger wheel myself...but time will tell. We'll see what the machine looks like when all done and gussied up.

Oddly enough, only one of mine is showing the marks, but they are fairly light. You could take them off, but as Benzo said, "that one rock will f**k your day up".
