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

Does anyone have any recommendations on where to go to fix curb rash? I have a pretty big one on my right rear wheel that I wouldn't mind getting fixed if the price is not too high.

Call the service center and see how much they charge. There's also Alloy Wheel Repair in Waipio. Not sure on pricing though.

Sad day. Had my model 3 about a month and finally got curb rash (about 1-2in. ) on my front right rim. Anyone get rims repaired recently and know what it costs at the service center vs other places on Oahu?
