    Mine are showing the signs. Cracks in the clear coat allowing water, therefore corrosion, to start - probably.

    It is kind of corrosion. If wheels are still under warranty, Lionshead will work with you. I had one replaced very efficiently.

    I had a problem that looked like some type of corrosion.

    I contacted LionsHead and sent pictures. They replaced all 4 wheels and helped pay for the remounting at the tire ship.

    Anyone know off the top of their head how long the wheels are under warranty for? Noticed all 4 of ours were doing something similar last Friday when washing our trailer. We've had our trailer about 14 months. Couldn't find anything in the owners manual that says what it is for the wheels only the tires, but i already changed those to GoodYears. Thanks in advance & Happy Trails!

    You did better than me. They were happy to send new wheels but wouldn't cover the costs of changing over.

    1 year, same as your GD warranty but if you contact them now they may do a wheel replacement in consideration.
