factory 17s are painted alloy...(probably clear coated as well)...usually when I see the goldish color it is from brake dust that wasn't removed (can be corrosive) and some wheel cleaners, especially when put on a warm or hot wheel can etch the finish...
If one of these is your issue, the wheel refinisher should be able to fix you up for not a real lot of cash...good luck and let us know the outcome...
