I'm not sure but I am taking it in for service on Saturday and I will be pointing it out to the tech to look at.

Re: Anyone else getting wheel corrosion?

I sprayed my wheels with some type of clear protective stuff. Makes them easyer to clean too.

Re: Anyone else getting wheel corrosion?

I've had good results using Meg's NXT wax on my old truck and my wifes 2007 Altima SE. Makes clean up much easier but that's it.

Re: Anyone else getting wheel corrosion?

Those pads release more than just dust Im afraid. As sticky as they are, there has to be some hot cinders embedding in the finish on the wheel.

Re: Anyone else getting wheel corrosion?

Good luck on the warranty replacement! That should not happen this quickly. But i would suggest sealing your wheels next time for added protection

Re: Anyone else getting wheel corrosion?

Here is what is happening on all 4 of my wheels. They took pictures and are sending into Chrysler to see what needs to happen. You can see that it is bubbling around the S and the T. This is happening over the entire wheel.

Re: Anyone else getting wheel corrosion?

kbench, what ever happened for you?

day of reckoning begins tonight for me. Taking truck in for interior CF recall pictures and wheel pictures to be sent to Chrysler for replacement. CF interior parts are a go, just got the recall mailer and one of my door pieces is laying on the passenger floor. Front wheels are the wildcard.

Anyone still have this issue or has had it start since original thread post?

Re: Anyone else getting wheel corrosion?

Well, they denied the claim. Told me basically to go F myself. You never clean your wheels and that's why it happened. Which is complete bullshit. My truck is immaculate for all intents an purposes, otherwise. My rear wheels are immaculate. The service writer I am dealing with agrees and said that he will back my statements should I work it up the Chrysler chain. He stated he agrees it is from brake dust, but my truck is immaculate and only has 26k miles and this should not be happening at that mileage.
