The nice thing about plastic dip is if you don't like it you can always peel it off.

Brad48178 I would plastic dip them or use spray on bedliner.

You are correct. this is known as "filiform" corrosion, a type of galvanic corrosion.

Beastmaster Yup, looks like oxidation to me. I'd buff it off and cover it with some car wax.
Not sure how the wheels are but you might even want to spray some clear paint coating to keep the rust out.

hagler123 Interested also....... I have the same looking blemishes on my tj canyon wheels but its worse than yours. I don't know it happened and I don't think it can be fixed. I think its some form of oxidation like when bare metal rusts

Whats on my wheels?

I recently got a 2004 TJ Rubicon with the stock 16" Moabs. I noticed it before we bought it and it isn't a huge deal, but there is something on almost all of the wheels and I can't figure out what. Look at the white spots around the center caps.

Anyone know what it is and how to get it off?
