    ISO advice for rusty wheels

    Hello fellow WRXers! I noticed this rust when I got my car back in July but the dealer said it would go away after I washed it. It never went away. I think it has actually gotten worse. I have attached a picture below.

    Please let me know if this has happened to any of you and if so how you got it fixed up. Thanks in advance!

    Do you have a wider view? I'm not sure what I'm looking at.

    THIS is normal

    Don't park the car and let it sit in heavy rain and then dry; Cover if possible, but some brake cleaner sprayed on and a drive will blow that rust right off. No worries.

    Aahh yes. That's just rust that has run down from the rotors. It's not the wheels themselves. Do like Jim says. You clould even use steel wool in there, or of course Royal Jelly.
