Black Rim Touch Up Advise

2nd Day of having the is car, woman in front of me today wasn't paying attention and plowed over a huge tractor trailer tire in the road, i tried to swerve out of the way but was boxed in traffic and couldn't get all the way out of the way (thankfully was able to spare the front end and any body damage), the tire slingshotted out from under her car and caught my rear passenger wheel. Anybody have some good advise on touching up black powder coating....been in a truck for 5 years and have not had one incident like this, just kills me.....any advise appreciated, new to this forum. These are 20" black powder coated Roush wheels.

I used a Sharpie and they laughed at me...

They laughed at me, Spencer!






















Haha.
I used the Sharpie to touch up some black powder coated Cobra rims that I only use on the racetrack. The chips and such are a hell of a lot less noticeable but they sure aren't perfect by any means...

It makes it worse when youve taken care of something for a long time and then in a blink of an eye, it was all for nothing.
If it's not too bad, maybe you can buff it out to where it's less noticeable.
And it probably only "sticks out like a sore thumb" to you...

I'm the same way... OCD.

Had this happen!.. sanded it smooth, taped it off just where the damage was to keep the repair minimal.. hit it with a shot of primer filler let dry, then couple coats of black spray paint.. let it dry... buffed the area.. not even worth taking an AFTER pic, looks brand new again.
Looked so good after, I had to reference the BEFORE picture to see where the damage was compared to the lettering on the tire lol

Or have the rim doctor fix it or buy a new wheel.
