Honestly that looks like some road rash, I had mine fixed for $40 the guy even came out and did them. He said the color was very unusual and hard to duplicate after some mixing he got it

Before I had them reprinted, I would make sure it's just curb rash and nothing more. Be a shame to paint them then have it lift.

It could just be a defect but it would be the only one ive seen on OE wheels. They were OE weren't they?

I would get a degreaser used for paint prep from a paint supplier and clean the 2 that are like that. Before I ever paid anybody to re-coat them, I would seal them.
