I hate that!! If I'm not mistaken when you curb your wheels...... There's nothing that can be done....but get it replaced!

Find a wheel repair shop... Local tire places usually have contacts they use.


I found a place locally... One rim got curbed In an accident... I was forced into a curb going low speed... rode the curb for a moment right on the lip). No structural damage... Just the lip (cosmetic). Gashed the black paint and machined lip.

$85 less than an hour.. Machined the edge, painted to match. Mounted and balanced.

You cannot even tell the wheel was ever damaged. Like new.

you can find a local wheel shop that can repair, a friend had some polished CCW's that he scratched and since they are bare metal he was able to have it polished out. if its chrome or painted thats not as easy, would have to be repainted/rechromed

I did this on mine, but it wasn't as bad. It came out real good and I saved hundreds.
