    Does anyone have rust like this developing on their wheel hubs? Is it from the rotors or coming from another source? How do you safety remove it? Thank you .

    Was that a spray application? Assuming so. Looks great.

    It's normal. The second day I had my car I pulled the wheels and painted all that with Rustoleum high heat grill paint. I bought a pint and used a sponge brush. Painted all the non-contact surfaces of the rotors that were grey from the factory.

    Over a year later still looks perfect and better than looking at rust through the wheels.

    That's exactly what I did. Hit them with some scotch brite or a wire brush, then wipe with a solvent (whatever --- alcohol, mineral spirtits etc) and paint. I didn't prime, just used Rustoleum on the bare metal...

    It is normal Michael. Especially with it getting wet, even in car wash or self wash.
    Worse in NY when cars are shipped during winter months
