20" Wheel Package Appearence

I have not read anything about this in the forum so I have a question. Has anyone noticed that the machining on the face of the 20" wheels is not even?
In the daylight I see swirl marks.I understand the wheels are from China but it bothers me they where an upgrade and have these imperfections.

Re: 20" Wheel Package Appearence

Yup, mine are the same way. I did a double take when i first noticed the swirls and was also wondering why the machined face has swirls. What do you mean by uneven?

I wonder how these will hold up in the in the winter months here on the northeast with all the salt they dump on the roads. I am actually thinking of using my father 17's from his wrangler and putting some cheap winter tires on them and use the 20's only in the summer and fall months.

If I didn't know better two wheels look like they tried to grind out curb damage because the edge next to the tire is uneven.

I don't see any uneven areas on mine.
