True.
Are you up north?
We don't have that problem that much down south from what I've seen.

Side note....its funny how people think the aluminum fords wont "rust", but everyone brings up corrosion issues on aluminum wheels!

No just wait til the galvanic corrosion occurs...

I thought of getting the aluminum wheels for my TT, guess I am glad I did not.. Good to see they put the highest quality rims on as well..

I agree with you. Get the dealer involved.

We also have a inclosed cargo trailerror that has painted wheels "same dance different song", they have rust at all the lugs and center hub. EVERY THING will require maintenance to keep looking good.

I dont think the chasing a leak is true on trailers because you would also be chasing leaks on lots of car and truck most wheels that come on cars are aluminum.

They are not the same though. Automotive wheels are powdercoated and not all powder coats are the same.There are many different kinds and compositions of powder.I wouldnt be surprised if the trailer wheels are wet painted with a clear coat automotive paint. For as many of these that are being used they could set up a couple robots and just wet paint them.Who actually makes them anyway?

I sorta doubt that they are painted unless someone did it after the fact (like I did) If they are the modular steel wheels from Dexter or probably anyone else,they are white powdercoat and last abot 2 years tops before they start peeling.

Yeah there is a reason the trailer wheels are 100 bucks new and the cars are 400.... Like was said.. Who makes them anyways? Probably the same people that make the tires.. LOL

I painted mine because of the crappy powder coating job.

The logging trucks our way use chromed wheels on their trucks and trailers because they clean up to a shine with out damage. Maybe the cost is a factor with this.

@MillerTime. We escaped the cold New England winters last year before we bought the Roo. We now live in Florida. I keep the wheels covered with a Camco tire cover when not in use and my rig has never been in a corrosive environment. The veining started almost immediately after we got it home from the dealer and has gotten significantly worse over the past couple of months. It's odd because all veining originates from the same edge on every the spoke. I literally mean EVERY spoke! It's almost as if the tires were spun clockwise during the clear-coat process and somehow the front edge didn't adhere properly. See attached photos of all 4 wheels. Click image for larger version
