Because 15 seconds with a wire brush is too much work?Found some rust, I will take the car to the stealership next week and ask if it is an issue that needs to be sorted.?
I wouldn't normally care either, but it will cost me nothing to tell the dealer - And it is not all wheels, it is just one, the rest are fine.It's naked steel in an environment with road salt and stuff. It looks no worse than my car did at 8k km or so when I changed to summer tires after the first half year of ownership.
I usually clean the hubs and the back side of the wheel hub with a wire brush when I change tires. I wouldn't consider it an issue of any sort.
It is only an issue, really, in start-stop traffic heading to like a roundabout or something because you might stop for like half a second and the car turns off. It is just something to get used to and I have changed my driving style a bit and it has become a non-issue.I haven't had a car with S/S yet but everyone I talk to hate it. I don't mind it as much, at least not in a manual.
