    How many miles?? Both cause that affect warranty too...and depending on the amount of flaking- They may try to chalk it up to road damage (Canada...Winters, Wilderness, etc etc)

    Most of the time they will offer to resurface them.
    It's only a surface issue with the prep that causes the flaking...but...GOOD luck either way!!

    Went to the dealer today and they are going to resurface the alloys, said they could replace with new ones but they will do the same thing again, apparently they need to have an edge taken down on the inside to prevent salt build up which causes the rust. should be better than new when finished!
