    Yeah I'm originally from VA, but I now live on the eastern shore of MD where they dump sand and salt if there is a chance of flurries...my frame looks pretty awful too...I try and get the underbody wash done from time to time...are there shops out there that will actually sand down the and treat it for rust kill/prevention?

    I had 3 of them that started bubbling while I was still under warrantee (2 years, 18K miles). Toyota replaced them free under warrantee.

    Hey BassMaster06, If it makes you feel any better, my wheels are in the exact same crappy condition as yours!

    That sucks. I was at the dealer and a used truck was on the lot with the same thing.
