Can this Black 10 spoke be repaired?

I don't know a whole lot about wheels, but I have a scratch around the edge of my rim, can this be repaired in any way?

Just had two right side wheels out for repair and repainting after curbing the car in a loop around! It was a total of 400.00 for both wheels and It was much worse than your picture! What did you do? Is that dirt from water drying on dirt, or a crack on the inner portion of the wheel.

Take a black wide sharpy marker and color it in. you would be surprised how much it will blend it after. You will only see it if you look for it or while cleaning wheels.

Don't ask me how I know.

That's a quick fix so others don't notice it, but you'll always know its there. I did that trick to my ACS Splitter I had on a previous Camaro, lol.

You could always try Plasti-dip... that seems to be the fix all for everything on here. The answere to you question is yes.

Yes they can be repaired.... I had mine done, and the repair is flawless but the paint peeled after I tried some different wheel cleaner. I am not happy at all with the factory coat on the 10 spoke black wheel, so I am likely going to have the set powder coated.

If we work out the deal in the other thread where we hopefully split the rims. I will take your rear tire.

I am trying to get a extra set for track day use.

These black wheels can be fixed at home cheap. I bought prep/cleaner to get all the grease and dirt off and then used fine grit sandpaper to get the scratches out, used dupli color de1634 I believe, it's a high temp engine enamel, satin black. All done and looks new.

Could you link the Dupli color and what grade of sandpaper?

I also am interested in the paint color/link.
These wheels have a metal flake in them, they aren't just a simple black paint.

Sorry, haven't been on here in a while but you have to use a fine grit or med and work to fine and it's a high temp duplicolor engine enamel. I'll look for it tomorrow cause I've moved and it's in a box somewhere.

I went to the dealer to get my tire rebalanced after a local yocal f'd it up and scratched my rim. They do not have the color code of rims but the tech touched it up with black and I have not looked at it yet. I will post a pic later of the two.

I don't like hard wheel cleaner on these, Fbodfather told me Simple Green and the fluffy kind of toilet brush, I'm giving that a go this week
