French term or phrase: rayures circonférentielles sensibles à l'ongle
talking about bearing races damaged because of lubrication problems. Bague extérieure: de nombreuses rayures circonférentielles sensibles à l'ongle.

I know exactly what they mean but I cannot seem to work it into a sentence that I can live with. Anyone feeling brighter and more on the ball?
