Not hatin', dude, but you said "brand new, never used" and the rubber area with the cracked paint, etc, doesn't look new. I dunno, maybe they come painted and after time the paint on the rubber (which would come off when you bolt them off) just chipped off? Anyway, they don't look new, but they don't look used either. The stickers make them look new. :?
(Just defending M50E30, they DID look rusty.)
