    Default Alloy wheel corrosion

    Hi, my rear alloy wheels are corroding, from the inside edge of the spokes. I'm hoping I can get them replaced under Warranty.
    Anyone else have this, and were they replaced?

    Rears corroding but front ok? Have you tried removing it to see it is corrosion and not some strange coating buildup? Most can be cleaned by rubbing with crumpled aluminum foil and Coke, then a wax or protective coating.

    It's definitely a removal of the paint layer. The dealer says that other cars here in the UK have had the same problem and is covered under warranty. It's booked-in for inspection so I'll let them remove all four wheels and inspect them.
