corrosion on 2012 summit wheels

I have some strange corrosion on my 2012 summit wheels (see pictures). Anyone have any idea what it is? Think it is a warranty issue?

Re: corrosion on 2012 summit wheels

There is another thread on this issue. Search for it. Good info in it.

In short water collects in there and rusts the hub.

I plan to notch my little plastic caps so it drains.

That is surprising. Even with our salted roads during winter here I haven't noticed that on my 3 year old GC.
