Re: Rust on a 2011 overland!?
If you take the wheels off, you could then steel wool the affected metal, and then paint it with a high heat paint, to clean up the rust and prevent future rust. If I ever get around to removing my own wheels and I see how little or how much rust there might be, I'll probably do that at some point. I made my dealer steel wool those areas before I took delivery. I also had rust proofing and sound deadening material/chemical-coatings added to prevent rust.
