lucky me....do they sell touchup paint for the rims?

what sucks is it isn't curb or pothole damage its midway on one of the spokes.

Sorry to hear but it is odd as the same happened to me. No curb rash but half way up the spoke. Bad news...they do not sell touch-up paint and good luck getting it to match color and durability of OEM. let me know if you find a solution. I am having the Caddy body shop mix me some paint but it will not be the same as they are concerned about the clear coat.

I'll trade you for my polished wheels. They look satin black after 2k miles of brake dust.

If it's any consolation I curbed my polished wheel today coming out of a parking garage. And I swore to myself I would keep these wheels blemish free. Oh well. Won't be the last scratch on the car I'm sure.

I'll trade you for my polished wheels. Plus $250 cash. They are curb rash free.

I had a few blemishes in my rims repaired for $50. It is a mobile outfit which did the repair in less than an hour. www.awrswheelrepair.com
