Help - rust on lug nuts!
So, I discovered today that what appears to be a surface rust is starting to form on several of one of my vehicles lugnuts, but primarily on the inside of the wheel lock on each tire. What would be causing this? Is there anything that I can do to remove the rust? It looks terrible!
The car is a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited. We had this SUV through last winter, so I'm not sure why all of the sudden this started happening. The car did receive it's last oil change/tire rotation at NTB, so I'm not sure if they could have done something incorrectly.
Bottom line, what's the best method to removing this? Is this fairly normal? (I live in Chicago, IL).
Lastly, if this rust cannot be removed, will the dealership replace the lugnuts under factor bumper to bumper warranty?
