Defects in my new set of Hostile wheels

I just received my brand new set of Hostile wheels. But after carefully inspecting them, I found all kinds of little scratches through the rims, as well as small dark spots in some areas on the wheels. I sent 2 of them back for replacement, and deciding if I want to live with the other 2 wheels the way they are. The 2 I sent back were the worst of the 4. Why would the manufacturer send them like that? I can't believe shipping would have done this. They were wrapped up well. Here is a pic of the wheel and one of the scratches on the spoke. Any one else have this issue? Curious if the replacement wheels look any better.

Update on my Hostile wheels!!!! I ended up sending 3 out of 4 Hostile wheels back and received 3 replacement wheels. These wheels look much better. Very small defects not worth mentioning. I had to hunt for these defects with a flashlight to locate them. Seems like perfect chrome wheels don't exist at least with my experience. Ordering some tires for these babies next week.
