All the aluminum wheels on my 2005 Acura Rsx-S are showing signs of early corrosion due to bubbling & erosion of the painted surface. One is particularly bad and is losing pressure at a rate of ~3lbs/sqin per week. This was first discovered on normal monthly pressure check when the tire pressure was 12lbs/sqin below specification. On inspection no puncture of the tire was found and the leak was traced to corrosion at the rim and valve seat. On complaining to the Acura dealer under warranty, I was told that wheel damage is not covered but this is not "damage" - it's corrosion due to poor materials and especially paint finish. The wheels are all completely free of accidental dents or nicks and the leak is entirely due to corrosion and I now fear that it will show up in all the other wheels. This is a serious safety hazard and I now have to check all tire pressures weekly and re-inflate the currently affected single wheel. My only remedy here is to have all four wheels refinished at considerable expense.
