    Took the aero wheel covers off today to add the lug nut covers and was surprised to see rust in the centers, this doesn’t seem normal having had it less than two months.

    Sure, thats completely normal. That area will show some rust spots upon delivery of almost any new car. Same with cast iron rotors after the new car dealer washes and preps the car for you. It's not a worry.
