Curb rash

I swerved to miss a dog & rubbed a curb. Some curb rash on the wheel. Argh! Can it be repaired to look good? Oh yeah, the dog is fine.

Yes they can make it look as good as new, there are shops that specialize in wheel refinishing. It typically costs between $100 to $200 per wheel.

Maybe someone here will have a suggestion for a shop in your area..

In the meantime, Titanium Silver paint is a perfect match for stock BMW wheels.

Hey Maalco

There are lot of businesses that repair curb rash on non-chrome rims. I did a google search: Jacksonville FL+curb rash and came up with a lot of hits.
Also most of your high end detail shops do it or farm it out, some even come to your location. A friend of mine went to a used car dealership and found out the one that they used for their cars.

Good luck

If you have minor rash on all your wheels and do not want to pay $400-800 to fix it, you can do it yourself. I am in the process of doing it myself so I can't say what the final result looks like. I am using the "German Wheel Restoration Kit", costs $50. It has 1z silver color that they say matches the silver on BMW's.
I also have read that Wurth silber spray is also an match.
Right now mine is ready for priming, so I need to take the wheels off so I don't get it on my car. It might be a month before I do that and I will update once done.
