rim corrosion

Just noticed on my 3 month old 2009 LE that three of my rims have started to corrode around the center Nissan insigna. Was wondering if anyone else has this starting to happen. Will show pictures soon.

Wifey just took off with the car, so I can't check mine right now. I detailed the car last weekend and usually blow all the water out of the lug holes before drying off the wheels, so I'm sure I would have noticed anything odd. Is it just one wheel or more than one? How would this problem fair with the Nissan "rust coverage" part of the warranty? Or is that just for the body panels? There's no way you're going the get total rust perforation on a wheel. This is way too early to be seeing something like this. Please keep us posted what the dealer says. Take care!

It is on 3 out of four of the rims. As soon as I can get back to the dealer I will post on what their answer is.

Sorry, I didn't comprehend your first post quick enough. Three wheels is definitely more than an isolated issue. Maybe it goes back to how the wheels were suspended when they were painted, for it seems to be rusted just inside the lip of the Nissan center cap (slight orange color showing in photo). I'll be checking mine all the time now. Take care!

I am guessing that the finish might get cracked when they install that cap and it is letting water and salt to get under it.

Are you running OEM rubber? The reason I ask is that it looks like your wheel's protective coating was damaged from a tire mounting or balancing machine.

Just checked my wheels and have one that I will be monitoring VERY closely. Slight pitting right next to the Nissan chrome center wheel plug. Take care!

Bring it back to the dealer and request satisfaction. See what they offer. I would be looking for new wheels (mounting and balancing costs included).

Maybe your car was in the bottom level of the ocean-going car carrier. Some of those tubs are old and rusty, and the bilges quickly fill will salt-water after a few days. If you get some rough seas that salt-water can slosh around right up to the bottom of the carriage.

If this turns out to be more than an isolated problem and it looks like it may, what would be the best way to approach the service department in the early stages of detection. (I'm showing slight pitting on one wheel at 1,700 miles and will be watching it and the other three very closely.) Once winter hits here in the Chicago area, and with the amount of salt they dump on the roads, I know the problem will be blamed on salt and any advantage I would have had will be lost. Not to mention that rust/paint is usually falls into a non-warranty covered area. Because early detection and documentation can only be in my favor, should I be taking photos every so often? I'm due for an oil change at 3,750 miles, should I wait till then to bring it up to them? I have already printed out The Reapers photo to show them what I am watching for. Advice greatly appreciated. Take care!

I was going to wait for my first oil change also, but now that red kiosk has the same problem I am going to try and take it in Tuesday night. Hope I don't go from the reaper to The weeper.
