    Anyone know what this is? All 4 wheels have small marks around the lip, but this one is about 40% of the rim. Looks like it's peeling under the laquer! I wasn't wanting to put them on until the weather cleared a bit so I wouldn't have to bother with a refurb, but since they need one anyway they'll be one early next week.

    Its sometimes referred to as "white worm."

    Generally happens when the lacquer fails and water gets between the metal and lacquer coat. If you get them refurb DONT re-lacquer them and you won't have this problem. Use a wheel sealant like poor boys wheel sealant to protect the bare metal
