  • Wheels pittting at valve

    Has anyone else had problems with there alloys starting to pit/bubble up just beside the valve? its hapening on all my wheels, some worse than others. i am going to nip in past the garage today if i have time and see what they say, surely this shouldnt be happening and i am going to see what they say about recoating them!

    I have the VXR artic edition, so its the black coated alloys, must be the coating starting to bubble.

    sounds like rust is starting to come through.

            I've not bothered with mine brought it used from vauxhall and I'm going to get them refurbished any way,

            But it should be covered under the corrosion warranty surely ?
