Curb on Rim...any suggestions?

I ate a curb with my 1le rims...I want to get it repaired or replaced but I'm really concerned with it getting done right, or getting the legit replacement ( I see them online for 250 and for $800) any suggestions on repair or replacement?

Well the rims brand new are $1114 and change each...looked into it after I curbed mine...repair can run I think between like $90-$250 all I did was sand down the area (which was worse than yours) and spray it with some black paint...very hard to notice unless you're looking for it. Also if you could tell me the site that you found them for $250 I'd appreciate it haha ill buy a whole other set

The reproduction wheels will likely be HEAVY. These are big wheels, I would stick with forged, and this reproduction wheel has to be cast for the price. So my vote is to repair the factory wheel.

In my area, there is a shop that repairs and refinishes wheels. It may still be around, I don't know. Perhaps call a couple of high end wheel shops in your area to see if they have someone they send wheels to for repairs.

Rust-Oleum to the rescue!


Still curious what the actual paint code is though.

Last pic I had to rotate the wheel to dry....the spot where I painted is right below the 'Camaro' word.

Try mobile wheel repair if they have one in your area. Around an 150 per wheel and takes an hour and looks like new.

Those are also a slightly different style around the edge. GM made them change the design.

I keep a black paint pen in my cleaning bucket. Unfortunately, I have had to use it a couple times.

Wow I can't even see where it was damaged before, good job on that repair. How hard did you hit the curb? Do you think you bent the rim at all?
