I have these crazy marks on my rims and cant work out what they are, they just do not look like scratch marks to me. Does anyone have any time to get them off or something?

I had a closer look and it seems to be some sort of white stuff spreading under the white coat. There is more there now then when I purchased the rims a month or 2 ago.

Obviously not new? If new, back they go to supplier.
When used/second hand I guess you get what you paid for.

Filiform corrosion. Ask Mrs Google about it.

Seen this before, on that type of wheel too it's a pain you need to sand them back and do a solid colour as far as i know.

It's some kind of alloy corrosion that comes through because of imperfections in the clear coat.

Yes, it is filliform corrosion and is the result of applying a coating to metal/ally in a high humidity environment. Wheels are made for Holden inThailand.
My Calais V had all rims replaced under warranty for this.
