White worm resulting from stone chips

Anyone have issues with white worm spreading from stone chips? I have the standard 5 spoke 18" alloys and the offside rear is showing a really bad patch halfway up one spoke. Can this be claimed under warranty?

Re: Is your car spending more time being unused???

My commute is now 5 minutes, via the kitchen to make a cuppa. Unfortunately my XE isn’t involved. I dare say the novelty of working from home will wear off very quickly. :|
