    How to repair curb rash on gunmetal rims?

    So unfortunate incident occurred driving through a really poorly maintained area. Was heading out of a parking area but the the curb(s) were too close together and there was a huge ass pickup parked right in front of the exit, so to avoid the front rim getting curb rash, I turned a bit too much and before I Knew it...!@#%!$!@#!@# !@#

    Anyways, I need some advice on how to proceed as it isn't a small quarter sized rash, rather almost 4inches around the circumference of the rim Click here to enlarge

    It's a pain in the ass when you drive carefully all the time and then out of nowhere $#@! like this happens. Anyone repair curb-rash rims before?

    It's a powder coated VMR VB3 in Gunmetal.

    p.s. I should definitely have gone with 275s in the rear.

    I'll ask VMR but shipping + refinish will probably be the same as getting a new rim presumably. I'll ask locally and see what they quote me. Will take the pics when I get a chance.
