    Back brakes

    4 months in of owning a Viva I noticed my back brakes are starting to have some rust spots. Is anyone else the same? Or did mine start to rust too soon for a new car?

    Brake drums will always go rusty. On cars with more solid pressed steel wheels you don't see the drums going rusty. On open alloy wheels you can see the discolouration/rusting more easily. Its only cosmetic and not detrimental.

    I know they rust but it seems too soon. Hate the look of rusty drums so I painted them with Hammerite and no rust has shown up since.
