And this is why I've always hidden my keys or kept them on my person. Hope you can get the wheel fixed up.

Post up a pic or two of the scrape. Someone on here may be able to point you in the right direction after seeing the extent of the damage.

The car is totalled. I'll give you top dollar at $1,000 for the car. You pay shipping.

I assume your brother is old enough to figure out how to get it fixed on his own = life lesson.

then kill him.

Can go to a wheel dr. I have done so in the past or just buy a new rim and keep the old one as a spare. You never know when you might need it. It's just a wheel it coulda been worse.

Agreed on the wheel dr. My boss had a company come to our work and completely re do/finish the rims on her Benz. They had a box truck that they worked in. Her wheels were much worse than that with what looked like gouges. And they made the wheels look like new. They looked so good that the wheels almost no longer should have been on the car. I wanna say maybe $500 a wheel for her. She had all 4 done. But again hers were in much worse shape. Not sure if that was factored in.

Honestly its a small enough scrape that its hardly noticeable really. But to fix it it'll cost about 150 or so.

Consider either have your brother pony up the dough or just wait until you have another scratch then fix it.

But either way you can google wheel repair or yelp it for your area for local places and reviews.

No way that would cost 150$ to repair. I have a guy, (granted he's on the east coast, op is poop out of luck) that would fix that for less than 50$ and color match. It would look new. I've used him twice in the past. 60$ each time for some serious rash on my old Wrx.

I thought the $500 was retarded as well. But point is you can definitely get it fixed without buying a new rim, If it's that big of a deal.... I think it being your car, you're the only one that will notice it. And your bro.

Find a local shop... In Houston, I paid $70 to have my scraped up black painted rim lip fixed.


Once you go black.... You wash/detail everyday.

I've scraped 2 of my factory 19's already. I don't like my wheels anyways so I got over it quick, plus I did it myself so there was no one to get mad at. I must drive like your brother. Just an excuse for me to get new wheels in the future.

I think you should have your brother pay for a replacement wheel and give him the damaged wheel to serve as a reminder to never take things that belong to other people without permission. If he's not working and unable to pay for the new wheel, then I would make him work it off (maybe wash your car inside and out once a week for 10 weeks or so), to teach him a lesson. BTW, I found these links for you on Ebay.

Selling blood and sperm will get him money to pay for the new rims. On second thought sperm selling is a bad idea. It means spreading more stupidity into the gene pool lol

No offense really jk

Replacement Brembo wheels are around 600bucks a pop. Like others have said, look into having it repaired.

Or, use these rims for winter tires, and buy a wheel/tire combo for summer driving.

I was looking to replace one of my brembos a few months ago. The replacement - direct from Ford - was $662.17 each. That's with zero dealer markup, I watched the service supervisor input it into his part ordering program, and looked at the price with my own eyes.

There's a full set locally on CL right now for $450. Buy the whole set and he'd have 3 left for his brother to curb.

I had a ford dealership look it up and yes they are ridiculously expensive for an actual ford brembo wheel, but yours is a very minor scrape, you could probably touch it up yourself and no one would notice, however finding the paint code/color seems to be difficult, I have been trying for a while and no one, even ford bodyshops can seem to find it. The wheels are 3 stage, black, then grey, then clear, although you probably only need the grey. If you or anyone knows the paint code, let me know I need to respray mine. If I cant find it I may go matte black

OP: I would not worry that little scrape. The OEM Pirelli PZero's tires on the Brembo wheels offer very little protection, even from just the lightest of curb touches when navigating around tight parking lot or just pulling in/out of driveways.

In other words, you're going to get more scraps and nicks in your Brembo wheels unless you make a habit of staying at least a foot away from any curb, or get tires that offer better wheel protection. You can tell me until your blue in the face that you'll never mess up your wheels, but I guarantee you that you won't make it a year without getting another scrape/scratch/nick in a wheel.

As for replacements, you can find a full set of take-offs all day on eBay, Craigslist, or Mustang FS Forums for about $1400 for a brand-new set, or $500-1000 for a set of Brembo wheels with used tires, and with or without TPMS sensors.

Lastly, Ford Racing sells the identical wheel in solid black for $250 each without a TPMS sensor, or a full set of 4 wheels with Ford TPMS sensors and training tool for $899 or less.

From the picture, those look like Brembo wheels. The only place you can buy those in the nickel color is through Ford. They are $750 a piece! A complete waste of money. Repair and paint is probably less than $150. The paint can be hard to match though.

Only 30 posts to give you the respect of answering your question. This fix sounds goofy but it works great. Use the 2 part original JB Weld to fill in the scrape. Don't use the quick setting version because its half as strong. Let it cure for 24 hours. Sand it to the contour of the rim. I think Duplicolor has a close match.
