Should this look so corroded?

Pulled my tires for a rotation this weekend (probably the last one I'll do myself, since that was a huge PITA). Anyway, what is this and why does it look so messed up? Is this normal? 30k miles on my WK2.

Re: Should this look so corroded?

Have you been in salt flats? To me that does not look normal as my 08 with 36k doesn't even come close to that

Re: Should this look so corroded?

Sorry to say mine looked even worse. I had only 6K and 12 months on them. The rims and rotors had a bad reaction and almost welded themselves together. I had to practically pry them apart. Have you checked the studs and nuts inside the front wheel wells? I have more rust than the Titanic. Looks like crap metallurgy to me. Planned obsolescence anyone?!?!?!

Re: Should this look so corroded?

What state is this in. One of the reasons why I left the rust belt...

I took a trip to the Adirondacks this past spring. When I got home I washed the truck from top to bottom and had a ton of New York State lying on my driveway when I was done.

Re: Should this look so corroded?

If you havent been in salt water or on some salt flats I would be taking it back to the selling dealer, that looks like it could become dangerous if not attended to.

Hell no. Get it sorted by dealer asap before that hub nut rusts itself on forever.

Here is mine after 8k. Doesn't look as bad as yours but I would say some rust is normal. Now you have me wanting to wire brush it and putting some corrosion inhibitor on it.

At a minimum put a bit of anti seize where the rotor meets the hub and some on your wheel studs.

And you went right by here on your way to the mountains and didn't let me know?
BTW, send that stuff back. I have a low spot in my lawn.
