DIY Curb Rash Repair

Found this today... thought i'd share...

it's really good and thorough... and a good quick fix for those of you that can't afford taking it to a rim fix place and paying 50-100 / rim to get it back to normal..

Does anybody know if the SiR rims are painted? or if it's just polished aluminum? if it's the latter, I'm SOL on this DIY

ya it's def not gonna be easy... who said it was? lol it's to save money...

the easy way would be to just not fix your curb rash... or just not get it in the first place...

i'm sure some place could colour match a rim for you... or it's a good excuse to repaint all your rims lol...

either way it's dooable... not easy though.

I am pretty sure that SIR rims are painted and not just polished.
