I have the same problem & yes I live by the water in S. Florida but my hubs and calipers are VERY rusty and I don't believe they looked like that when I bought the car used over the summer. I definitely would have noticed that but they also took the car back and put 4 brand new tires on it and when I got it back, I saw that !! Everyone says remove the wheels and scrub with a wire brush then paint or put some un-seize grease (or something).....anyway, that's all fine and good but I'm a girl & can't really c myself removing tires and putting them back on correctly. Does ANYONE, know of anyone in S. Florida that does this? Seems as though they would have quite the "captive" audience. Please help me or I'm going to back this business and have someone open a shop..ha!!
