So I drove over a snow pile yesterday and...

there was a effin curb under it. Curbed the shit out of my wheel. Now the question is how do I fix this? The dmage is not that deep but it is about an 1/8 of the rim edge. I need a quick fix. Im getting new rims come spring time.

there is really no quick fix to it, the only other alternative is to clear coat it

What he said.. Not really a quick fix. That's the worse feeling; curbing a rim that is

Re: So I drove over a snow pile yesterday and...

is it just 1 wheel? does your wk2 have full sized spare? if yes to both questions, then just swap the spare tire/wheel and make the curb rashed tire/wheel your spare.

"Full size" spare in WK2 is actually slightly smaller then regular tire and also has completely different wheel that looks like these "donut" wheels - it is not made from aluminum alloy.
