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.

Warranty will not cover curbing.

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?

Mine does it cover curbing the wheel and damage to the tires.

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.

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...
Ouch. And that is why I always back it into spots.

Oddly enough, I'm good at gauging the length of the car, but I kinda suck at keeping it in the lines when I reverse it. I blame it on my DD

Unfortunately I joined the curbed wheel club today too. :( Just barely nicked the driver side rear pulling into my parking deck entrance, which is way too narrow. Ouch.
