Rusty Wheel Hubs: Anyone else having this issue?
The wheel hubs on all four corners are rusting and throwing "rusty water" onto my rims. Now I can understand the typical rust that forms on the rotor surface when the car has sit, and then gets worn off by the brake pads.
This however, is forming on the "hub" and is enough to cause that "rusty water spray" onto my rims.
Anyone else have this problem? Is this supposed to be acceptable by customers? (is is a 2014 which I bought back in May of this year)
I don't find it acceptable........none of my other cars have done this over the years, just the Evoque.

The rims are aftermarket?
Yes. Aftermarket replicas of the factory Style 6. I had them completely powder coated in black.

I would hit them really well with a wire brush and just paint with primer.
