    Got my first and really bad curb rash yesterday due to the extreme high curb side in SF. For a normal silver alloy wheel, it would have been passable but with a black wheel, it is sticking out like a sore thumb. Anyone know if I can get some touch up paint to cover it up? The scratches are "okay" but the exposed silver is a problem.

    TIA

    Don't know about touch-up paint, but perhaps you should put on some rim protection. My wheels have Evannex' version; see photo. Perhaps the plastic ring rips off at first curb encounter, but it gives peace of mind that I've done what's possible to keep the wheels nice.

    I had a similar issue and the service center said the paint is not out yet...but I feel like we should be able to get a color match somewhere. Hopefully someone will post a solution.

    Thanks for the advice but in this case, the darn curb is so high that even the spoke was scratched...
