while changing oil in final drive , my son was on the drivers side and said there were cracks on the rear wheel (pretty sure there was some kind of language violation mentioned) , is the a way to check these cracks or are they cracks in the finish from road debis, or even clumbsy mounting of the tire last year. They are not confined to one area

Someone has to say it...

:worthless

(probably nicks in the finish from (dis)mounting of tires over time.

If you really want to know pull the wheel and take it to a machine shop. Most can check for cracks with at least a dye penetrant test if not a magniflux check.
