Curb rash

Got some pretty bad curb rash on on of my rims this weekend . They're matte black and I know I can have them re painted but the scratches are pretty deep to where it dug into the lip of the rim. Any advice other than learn how to park next to a curb would be great haha.

Matte black? Plasti dip does wonders over curb rash. Had some really bad on my wheels, and with plasti dip you can't notice unless you're on the ground two feet away. Best part is that plasti dip is already matte black, so it could match your wheel. If not, you could just do the rest of them with it, only $6 a can and 3-4 cans should do all 4 wheels.

It will "stay" as long as you want it to really but you really shouldn't keep it on for more than 6-8 months. Some people have said they keep it on for a year plus, but the older it gets the harder it is to remove. Plastic and heat/cold over and over again = crusty plasti dip

Yep. It's good stuff as long as you apply it correctly and maintain it. It gets a bad rap because 75% of people don't apply it correctly & or neglect it and then others see it and think ohh that stuff is crap. It's good stuff. But like anything else it has its limits and uses.

Just throw "how to plasti dip" in YouTube and watch some how to vids. The "Dip my car" guy (yes he plasti dips entire cars) has great videos showing how to mask and apply. Not that you need a Wagner paint sprayer like he uses. But you will understand it more after a few of those videos.
