    touch up paint for the rim will do fine...

    but I have heard Alloy wheel repair Specialist is the best on the island. But I have never used them (yet)

    The first time I got a curb rash, I was so distraught with myself, and made an appointment with Alloy Wheel Repair. This was over 5 years ago so I don't remember the price but I think it was around $150, and within a month or two I got another curb rash. I've been driving for 33 years and never curb rashed my wheels until I got an S. Now I've got some measure of rash on all 4 corners over the years. I just came to accept it on the turbines.

    I know the feeling, I have never curbed a wheel till I got an S. This girl does have wide hips though.. probably looking into going with Prodent Hawaii.

    I feel like the paint in the Turbines are prone to chips. I have a few chips on almost every wheel but in random places on the spokes. Probably have them repaired all at once
