Dinged Wheel

scraped a curb pulling into parking garange.
Stock wheel for a '12 2SS - any suggestions on "fixing/repairing" this other than costly replacement?

There are shops that specialize in fixing rims and wheels. The price may be half what you would pay for a new wheel but it is definitely worth if done correctly.
Good luck!

Not sure if your wheel is polished or midnight silver but check out this thread.

Painted silver (is that "midnight silver?) Anyhow, this was interesting. I'm the un-handyman and at the mercy of others for this kind of task but thanks for the reply.

I did the same thing to one of my Giovanna Dalars a few weeks ago. Broke my heart because it was the first curb rash in almost a year. I pulled out my dremel tool and sanded it down then buffed it out. Its not 100% perfect but it looks good and can't be noticed.

Thanks. Don't have a dremel and had to Google to see what it is. Not handy-man tool oriented. So checking out local repair places but thanks for the reply.
