Scratched Wheels!

Well it had to happen at some point. I put a nice little scratch in my Polished Wheels.

Could have been way worse, but still a bummer.

Do you guys have any recommendations on how to make it look better?

Just one more. I've had it happen also with the midnight silver painted rims, so polishing wont fix it.

Check w/a company called Rim Technolgies. A car came around a bend in my lane and I swerved my 2SSRS and hit a pot hole and put an 8 inch scrape from just before one spoke to between it and the next. It was really gouged bad. I was sick to say the least. Mine are the 20" painted. My dealer suggested them. They came to my house and you cannot find where it was repaired at all! $65 and it's as good as new.
