Ouch

I don't think there's much to do..maybe a new rim if it bothers you that much? perhaps a wheel shop may be able to fix it?

a shop might be the best way to go, but if your up for a job there are websites/forums where people show how they've fixed curb rash with bondo/sanding/painting etc so just google it and you'll find help.

I have some rash on my wheels, not horrible so when I get the chance im gonna sand them down and then polish them and they'll be brand new again

Ahh, another O-town member! yeah, it's pretty bad. Maybe when it is time for new tires I might take them and have 'em powder coated.

Not sure who your asking for a link, but if its me, you can head over to dipyourcar.com and then select products from their menu. They have loads of colors. Myself and several others have "dipped" their wheels (I've also done my grill and fuel door). It works great on badges as well. Some people cover the entire car! Dipyourcar has a how to where they dipped an audi s3 and the just did a bmw m3 as well. I love the stuff

Those are nice OEM wheels too! I found that a shop charges about the same as my wheels to fix rash (I have a nice chunk out of my front left from a toll booth near chicago ).
