Default Crappy Paint?

There's a little bit of road construction out where I live, and I drove over some gravel roads to get through it and I noticed that I have painted chips all over the area behind each tire!

They're pretty bad too, I was wondering if y'all experienced anything similar, and if warranty covers something like this. I just need to know what my options are

You'd be hard pressed to get warranty to help on that. Sad to say but anymore most vehicles only get one coat of paint by a robot so they can get coverage with minimal paint.

Warranty won't fix this. They have no control over where you drive.

I agree...the paint is thin. A lot of folks have used some 3M Clear Bra (or equivalent) material to cover that area at all four wheels.
