Small chip in uberturbine

So lo and behold I have a chip in one uberturbine rim. No road rash. Didn't run over anything. Small chip, like a rock hit it, although I don't see how it's possible. In any event, is there a product I can apply to cover it up? I searched but didn't find any results.

TIA
 
Best thing to do is to try and clean up the chip area with a small nub of sandpaper, dab some body filler in there and then sand smooth when it dries. Then you need to find a touch-up paint that you believe matches the finish best.

Alternative would be to find a wheel repair specialist (mobile service would be great) in your area. They should be able to repair the wheel very very well for <$100.
 
When you say mobile service, are you suggesting Tesla mobile service? I doubt you are, but wanted to ask.

No, not at all. I'm talking about independent wheel repair specialists. It sounds like your issue lends itself well to a mobile repair that wont require even dismounting the wheel/tire from the vehicle.
