Look tracked to me but it is hard to know. My wheels last summer looked just like that after a HPDE weekend. I think you would have to really be pushing the car hard on the street to get chunks like that.

I don't think they look like they have been on a track, maybe driven slightly spiritedly on a rough road surface or not all that fast on a track. If they were tracked semi-hard the wear would be further down on the edge or the tire.

My left front looks like that from on ramps. It's definitely driven hard.

I would also agree that it look like it hasn't been tracked. it's easy to make those marks on the street with a bit of a spirited drive and under-inflated tires. I had brand new PS2's that wore all the way through the siping that comes out to the edge after 1 hard track day.
