I've already contacted the seller about those. He said the wrong cleaner was used and messed up the finish.

Hi John,
probably won't be able to get around to cleaning one until the weekend. I will tell you that they are straight, but prior to me buying the car I believe they cleaned the wheels with the wrong cleaner or left it on too long so the finish definitely needs to be re-chromed. I changed the wheels & tires when I bought the car.
Gas for me to do it would be about $110

Here are some pictures. It is really hard to take pictures of chrome I am finding out If you see the pattern, it is either they sprayed wheel cleaner on them when they were hot or the wrong type of cleaner. BTW: the center caps are fine.
