Body shops can do it I think. Easy fix, they sand it down then repaint it, then apply clear coat.

I assume your Asanti's have a chrome lip. NOT easy to fix, you cant paint chrome, and you cant re-chrome just one section. Whoever fixes it will have to take apart the rim, assuming its a true 3 peice Asanti rim, and then grind out/fill the rash then prep the whole peice for re-chroming.

Or you can contact Asanti and buy a new lip section from them and take your rim to a rim shop and have them do the swap...Asanti also offers this service you can send your whole rim to them and they will swap out the damaged lip with a new one. Thats the joy of a 3 peice rim if one part gets damaged you only have to replace that part, not the whole rim.
