Scratch on rims

I've been going through tough times lately. Haven't really been on the forum as much or takin care of my car and now there's a big scratch on the lip of my deep dish. It's not deep at all. but is there a way I can remove it or something? Some product?

I'm sorry to hear that you're going through tough times DRM.
Me too. In the span of a day I had to completely rearrange my priorities. I've only driven my Mustang twice in the past month or so.
Life. It will throw you curve balls until the very end.
We'll just have to work through the problems and keep moving forward.

Normally, rims have a clear coat sprayed on them, so that will have to be redone after the scratch is removed. Depnding on how deep the scratch is, you will need to use some metal polishing compound and, maybe, very fine grit sandpaper to remove the scratch. As long as it's not too deep, you will be able to remove it. It's just going to take some "elbow grease"...

Thanks man I really appreciate it. I have some rubbing compound in the shop. But it has to be specifically for metal? The scratch isn't deep at all. I think it may have came for dirt scrubbing it or something cause it happend after I went down a dirt road after rain

Any compound will work. If the scrach isn't that bad, you may be able to get it out without burning through the clear coat.
