2012 Titanium 18" mags
 
Does anyone else notice any issues with these wheels? I'm noticing chunks missing where they meet the disk rotor when I was checking my air pressure this morning. Three of my four wheels have this going on.

MOVED: to Third Generation Ford Focus (2012)

Got any pictures of the damage?

Post pictures, some wheels are notched in the hub area to save weight. Maybe, Ford started to do that?

One of many - all sizes can be found. No this is not by design or for weight saving.

If they are irregularly sized and spaced then yea, that's bad news. Any picture showing the backside with the wheel off the car?

Here's what the underside of my 17"s look like:

That has flashing on it and looks like a parting line from a casting mold. We need more pictures to confirm.

My car has them too on all the rims. I think that is just how are when they are manufactured.

Hard to tell what I'm looking at. Can you take a few other pictures?

This is normal notches, on alot of rims to allow air and water to escape from hub area.
