    Still getting used to my MX, pull up to the garage at work with a gate (3 lanes 4-5" concrete dividers), and... *crunch. Doesn't look too bad, but will definitely need to patch up the wheels (matte black 22s).

    Well, anyone recommend a little paint filler for a quick and dirty touch up? Might stop by the local Autozone to see what they recommend.

    So covered it up with a little bit of black acrylic paint, sprayed in a cup and applied with a Qtip :). I'm sure once it gets some added scars will do an actual repair, but works for now! You can't really tell unless you bend down and look at it in detail. Works for me!

    I use a Black Sharpie in between professional repairs.

    Came here for the same exact issue. I'm currently looking at wheel band kits on ebay (link). Has anyone used these? too cheesy?
