No wonder real estate is so expensive in NY. You guys are taking it home with you!!

BTW, send that stuff back. I have a low spot in my lawn.
Sorry, but I'm keeping it. I consider it payment for the paint chips on my front bumper and hood, and two windshield chips, all from that trip.

Re: Should this look so corroded?

I second the wire brush and rust inhibitor suggestion. Just be careful not to get any of the lubricant on the face of the brake rotor. I hand a flat tire on my right rear two years ago in the middle of nowhere in rural Alberta Canada and I had a difficult time freeing the rim from rotor. Now I do preventative maintenance on each tire every spring and fall. Another hint is not to over tighten the lug nuts. I purchased a torque wrench and now tighten the lug nuts to the specifications noted in the owners manual.

Re: Should this look so corroded?

Yeah, a few of the rims were sticking when I did my rotation: That was part of why it was such hard work.

As far as taking it back to the dealer, I purchased it used with 22,500 miles on it. Like 99% of the used WK2s sold last year, it was a rental car in it's former life.

If it doesn't qualify as a warranty fix, which it probably wouldn't, they're not going to help me out in the least.

UPDATE: Went in for service, Dealer says thats just surface oxidation, warranty not applicable but it isnt anything to worry about

Re: Should this look so corroded?

What anti-seize or rust inhibitor did y'all use and did it fix the issue?

Re: Should this look so corroded?

I give the hub a light spray of WD40 and wipe off the excess. I wouldn't be putting heavy rust preventative or anti-sieze in that area. What holds the wheel onto the hub is not the studs and lug nuts as such but the pre-stressing friction they produce between the wheel and the hub so it's not a good idea to put anything between them that might interfere with the friction coeficient. I figure the fine film of oil that WD40 leaves behind wouldn't hurt. I also torque the lug nuts.

Re: Should this look so corroded?

I discovered Jeep fixed this problem on 2014 wheels.

You can also fix your wheels.

I started a thread on it in the tire and wheels section.

They added a drain (5 actually) to hub cavity.

It will also prevent wheel from seizing to the hub.

Here is the thread. Includes photos of mod to old 2013 wheels and new 2014 wheels

Possible fix for preventing Rusty Hubs
