Thanks for that suggestion. They said that their color does not match the original. I am going to see what the dealer has to say

It's going to be tuff finding just one rim unless you buy it from the dealer or find one on e-bay

I am Houston Tx, so I don't know how often winter wheels would get use :-)

What did they do for a fix? Took to a place in NY and was told they couldn't fix it because of the finish.

Re: Got cut off and now my rim is scratched bad

This was a mobile unit where they repaired the scuffed parts and painted it...I have the carbon satin ones, believe chrome ones etc would require more work. I can't tell where it is even! previously i had curb rash removed from my other vehicles esp when i used to lease them
