whats wrong with my wheels?

Hey guys,

First off let me show you a extreme close up of my front left wheel.



I have only had these wheels for 6 months and bought them new. The back two wheels look perfectly fine but the front two are looking like the picture. I do have a 2wd and front brakes, there was a period of time where i had brake dust on my wheels but the past 3 months i have been very considerate of cleaning my wheels every week. I have some meguiars foam wheel cleaner and mothers aluminum wheel wax. How do i get rid of those little bumps? what is it?

You talking about the little pits? Can you feel them with your fingernail? If so, sounds like the cleaner you are using is too acidic.

Yeah the pits are what I am referring too. The only thing is that those pits aren't on the back two wheels and i have used the same cleaner for all wheels.
