actually it looks like something dribbled down the face of the wheel. like where you parked, something dripped down on it, but only caught the face of the wheel. i doubt it's vandalism. i can think of easier ways to vandalize cars, rather than something that creative, unless he had the "crop circle" mentality

Looks to me like the good ole ink between the rim and the tire then put the car in the windtunnel and remove off ink off body trick.

Try some Rubbing Alcohol.... drugstore bought and a soft cotton cloth, like an old t-shirt. Put the alcohol on the shirt and try to rub it off AVOIDING the black painted inserts!!!

Good luck.

Before he goes into the depths of abrasives, is acetone a viable solution without screwing up the wheel finish? I know it works good on adhesives......

The rims arent scratched, there will be something that will get this off for sure, take it to a specialist if you have no joy -shouldnt be that expensive.

Agreed. I intended to include Acetone in my reply to this post regarding alcohol-based solvents. The only cautionary note with Acetone is to wear gloves as it is an irritant to skin. Good luck!

I would be carefully with chemicals like Acetone in case it softens the clear coat.

That sucks dude, so sorry to see that. Looks very weird I must say, but it does look like someone painted lines with some sort of marker. There should be some way to get it off though I think.

To look at this from a bright point of view, the person who did that could have easily keyed your car or something bad like that, and THAT would have sucked even more - bodyshop - inssurance etc. But hope everything works out for you bro. Peace!

P.S LM-Rs are nice!!!!
