They need to acknowledge this just like the ball joint issue on the 05.
OH and the radios that lose time from birth.
There's a TSB for the radio clocks.

Mine were pretty rusty too. I think the problem is the little center cap on the rim. It allows water to get in and it seems to hold it there allowing rust. The metal isn't treated either. Now that mine are clean from the axle work that was done, I'll be coating them with something, maybe plasti dip.

Just remove the wheel, take a wire brush to the threads and apply a good water resistant protectant to the threads. Too bad cosmoline is no longer available.

A little expensive but there probably isn't anything better.
