Dumb dumb dumb - wheel damage

Like an idiot I finally was confident about parallel parking the beast and rubbed part of the front black wheel away in the curb by my driveway. This happened after son just asked. "Dad, why do you always back into parking spaces?" Now you know ...

Anyway palstidip seems to have restored it and it's a bit hard to see the damage now.

Wahh!

Ouch! Sorry to hear that. I've only had mine since Thursday so, so far so good. Glad the plasti-dip is working out for you! But I can see myself doing something like that too.

Quick question for you. On your wheels where it says "CAMARO" are the edges of the lettering sharp? I snagged my microfiber rag and cut my sponge when cleaning the wheels today. Any suggestions for wheel cleaning? Sorry I kinda feel like I just

I bought a black paint pen and keep it handy. I curbed it doing the parallel parking also and the pen worked good at hiding it.

As for cleaning, the only sharp edges I have are where it is curbed.

It happens....... I suck at parallel parking so I don't unless I really have to lol. At least you were able to do a bit of a touch-up. It helps hide the pain.

The hospital that I work at has ridiculously tight parking garage entrances/exits. I basically have to turn 90 prior to entering or the rear rim catches the curb. Usually not a problem if I'm not really tired. However, I have scraped twice (once post night call, the other at 0445 coming in to round).

I used a professional sharpie to cover it up. It has stuck for a month so far. I know it's there and have to be very close (bending over to look) to see it.

I've curbed my RS's 20" wheels twice. The second time I did not bother fixing it. lol
I can only imagine how much more the 1LE wheels can get curbed easily.
Sorry to hear it. Don't let it get you down though. It happens to the best of us!!

Don't feel too bad man. That wheel I had that was damaged during shipping? I curbed the crap out of it within a month leaving a McDonald's :( plastidip and a brush at least let me make it black again. I wasn't too horribly upset about that one since its supposed to be replaced anyway. The one that pissed me off was when I scuffed up the driver side front, and tore about 6" of that lip on the tire...not even tore all the way off, it's still connected at both ends, you can just pull on it like a bowstring lol.
I've become a little more aware of the size difference of the car since all that happened...

I went ahead and got the tire and rim warranty my dealer offered just for this reason. Cost me an extra $100 but good for 5 years.

Dont worry it happens, I curbed my 19" Volk TE37's on my Genesis Coupe the 3rd day I had them... $4600 ruined by an asshole who didn't move over.

I rashed both passenger side rims 10 days ago trying to tuck it into a parking spot. One company wouldn't repair them because they don't dismount and one has the rash right on the lip. I have another company coming to look at them this weekend. Anybody have any experience with wheel repair companies?

Had mine in 3 different shops in one week, noticed the curb rash on the passenger side front at the end of the week :( but a little touch up paint and you cant see it now. Will send if for repair over the winter

My gf is horrible at parallel parking also, boy does it piss her off when I park any vehicle lol think parallel parking a Camaro is hard, try parking a 53ft trailer in between 2 other trailers at a different than you are

Take your time parallel parking, look over your shoulder occasionally and use your mirrors most. If you have bad depth perception you will always have trouble unless you have someone guiding you or you constantly get out and check your progress

1LE wheels are not cheap btw so if you mess them up and need replacement it'll cost you at least $1200 per wheel with a core

I did it too... Don't back up using that damn camera. It's freaking useless. I got the passenger side rear.

I used a combo of gloss and flat black touch up paint from Auto Zone. It matched just about perfect. I was dead set on getting it fixed immediately but it is discreet enough that I'm going to let it be for now. It was only about 1" long by 1/4" wide.

I will tell you this when it's time for tires I'm going 305's in the rear (like the ZL1) the rim protector on the 285's got turned out when they stretched them on the 11" wheels. I'll probably fix the wheel then.
