    It's probably clear coated, so polish it like you would paint.

    Least aggressive first and work up if necessary.

    I would contact the dealership where you bought the car or where you do claim warranty. It seems to be something wrong in the paint either the base color or the clearcoat.

    Is it possible that you have let a wheel cleaner or another cleaner to dry on the rims? If they where so from the start it can be the dealership that did it or a manufactures failure of some kind. But it almost looks like a chemical etching or a problem when it got painted.

    I used a product "CG" that claimed safe for all wheel types sprayed onto all 4 wheels then washed off starting with the first so it wasn't sitting long 30 seconds tops. It's odd only one wheel has the issue.

    The car is leased so I will deal with it until I return it in 3 years and never use this product again. Thanks
