Tire/Wheel Question

Have a new 2015 3010DS Sunseeker. Taken it out 4 times, and the last time, while filling up with gas I noticed something odd about the tires. If I'm looking at the top of the tire, I could see a portion of the wheel underneath the tire. The tire pressure was good. After I saw that on the one tire, I inspected the others, and found that i could see a portion of the wheel exposed on all the tires, some more than others.

Is this something I should be concerned about? I'll be taking it back to the dealer soon for some work that was identified during the walkthrough, but will be taking it back out camping before then.

Thanks.

Is there any chance you can take/post a picture of what you're seeing?

I think you are looking at the actual rim that is under the hubcap. The chrome hubcap is just for looks and you remove it to get to the actual rim.

It's hard to tell from the pics on my phone but if it's like mine, those are only inserts on the wheels. They may be coming loose. No danger to the tire, just might get lost if they are loose.
