I scraped my 2012 18 inch alloy wheels on a curb. Can they be cleaned up/repaired?

You Bet! Do a google search for Alloy Wheel repair, or talk to your local BMW, Mercedes, Cadillac dealer. They will have someone that comes to their dealerships and does repairs on the spot. I've had a couple repaired over the years. They know the paint codes of each wheel and my experience has been a perfect match. I did have to have them send off some Mustang wheels that had machined faces because their mobile trailer wasn't equipted to the the machining. Expect $100-200 wheel depending on the damage and 1-2 hours and you'll be back on the road. Kind of like paintless dent removal. It's a small price to pay to not see the dent or scrape everyday.

In Hialeah, Palmetto expressway and Okajobee. . Don't remember the name, that was in 2011 with my 2010 cts 4 door. I will call the dealer and let you know the name.
