Some wheels these days are made of steel with an overlay that makes the wheels look good. Without seeing yours, I don't know of their specific contstruction. I can tell you, though, that will the style of wheel I'm speaking of, there is a higher risk of abrasion noise due to how the wheels are assembled.

Naturally...consult your local dealership, as your warranty is in effect strongly at this early stage in the game.

Sounds like wheel covers flexing on the wheels. Dealer should fix under warranty right?
