Today I was giving my bike a good clean in the sun and noticed a pattern of crackles on the rims of my brand new pair of DT SWISS R 24 Disc wheels. Anyone seen this before? Both front and rear have the same pattern all around. And while it is barely discernible in low light, it is very clear in the bright sun. Any reason for alarm?

If the fim was failing there would be cracks or bulging at a spoke hole. It is crazing in a laquer you are seeing.

Don't worry it just the surface finish not the metal that has crazed.
