I'd go back to the dealer & ask nicely for some new replacements, let them see the bad / rusty ones you have on now. Tell them you'll install them yourself, just want some replacements. Should be no problem. Sounds like the protective plastic casing got cracked during factory ( have you / anyone ever removed your wheels since
getting her ? ) install.
I agree with you, very little wear on them, they should last & not be damaged from that stuff. Go to Ford & see if they'll give you some new ones, they should.
I don't see how they would call this a "wear & tear item', like tires, wiper blades etc., they should replace them under warrenty, plus the're FREAKIN' cheap !!! Not like you want a new headlight assembly because it has a rock chip in it
Wow, that's cool. I'm going to have to call my dealer because the lug nuts on both my rear wheels are rusting. I had to replace both rear tires already, one from the dealer due to "manufacturer defect" and one because I got a huge nail in the sidewall. Then last week when I pulled the rear wheels off to install the splash guards, I noticed they were starting to rust. They have a chrome cover over the actual nut and it must distort and crack the chrome when you torque on them. Anyway, they shouldn't be rusting after only a month, especially in the middle of the bone dry desert.
