Today I have noticed some of the spokes on my 2018 ATAS front wheel starting to feel a bit rough to the touch, also they do not have the same lustre as when new in march the thread base that the spokes go into are discolouring and dull. I have a 75 bonny that I had re-spoked in stainless 8 years ago and they still feel and look like new, I have rarely been caught out in rain as this summer has been a dry one and only wash in cold shampoo water, Should I or we be concerned as with the history of these Honda wheels???

ATAS Spokes are stainless steel if they are going rusty there not ATAS Wheels
ive just had my std AT wheels replaced by the dealer with new ones with stainless spokes

Depends if Honda used 300 or 400 series stainless steel. 400 series can have rust spots.
