Not yet (10k miles/14 month’s ownership). So Cal environment has been very forgiving to the exterior. Do you drive on salt treated roadways?

That mileage doesn't seem nearly enough to generate that corrosion. Something does not add up here. What are those bolts made of anyway? Could it be the metal they are using? Frankly, I am at a loss on the cause of the problem.

Welcome to BroncoRaptor.com! 🍻 My Raptor was in winter storage, however my wife's Sasquatch Bronco wheels have the same bolts, 8k miles including some winter road salt days and no corrosion yet.

Yeah looks good, off to dealer I go..
That's my recommendation.

i am in NYC too, but I just pickup the 2024 last month. so no salt yet. Anyway, any chance is from the car wash? some car wash chemicals can cause corrosion.
