I should restate my wheels cost about 135.00 a piece on average. For the 17x8 bullitt antracite, so I figure at 80 bucks just to fix curbrash it is not worth it. Here- its about 100 bucks.

Wheel fixing places are ridiculous- I asked about painting rims and they wanted $110 a wheel! Plasti-dipped them myself this weekend - total cost $10. I've got the Bullitt anthracites also, so yeah another $25 and I could've had brand new rims at that crazy price.

You know, that is a good question, I know you can get a jewlers roge (not sure of the spelling) and a drill along with metal polish. Never Dull will hide it.

Here is my problem: I haven't yet took it off and polished it.

Where would you go to find a shop that would fix this? Just like a local tire/wheel shop?

Usually these people specialize in wheel repair. Google is the best place. I would ask around but most tire shops don't fix wheels.

As stated above look how much your wheels are new and compare costs.

The wheel should only cost you about 135.00. Look on eBay, then list your bad wheel. You can try negioiating with the shops.

I'll look around. It only 2 that have a little curb rash on em. And it's not major but if it was cheap I would go out and try to get it fixed but since it's like 80 a wheel, it's kinda hard.

So you got me started on a mission, sort of. If you go to youtube you can see how some people have fixed their Curb-rash. It doesn't look hard. I haven't tried that yet.

I polished mine to get rid of some stuff, and they turned out real nice. I used Mothers polish found at any local store.
