Curbed my rim :
 
Short of buying a new rim, do I have any options?

Can try to paint it? I don't even know what color that is.

I'm so pissed at myself.

That can easily be fixed. Don't beat yourself up over it. If you don't have the know how, ask your dealership who they use for rim repair.

Might be tough to paint. Hyper silver is a multi step paint process almost like a candy paint job.

On my previous 2012 Overland, I had a small paint chip that annoyed me so I had a place come over and repair it. Even after 3 attempts, he never could get the finish correct. I finally gave up and ordered a new wheel, tire and TPMS.

If you do try a repair and aren't satisfied, I have the replacement Overland wheel/tire for sale in the classifieds. I put the repaired wheel/tire back on the 2012 at trade in time.

Thanks for the replies. I was really wanting you all to say that there is a touch up paint I can buy from the dealer ... But I guess that would have been too easy!!!

Bob, I saw your ad. Where are you located?

There is touch up paint you can buy online for the wheels. It's Satin Carbon color. You'll need clear coat touch up too.

Thank you and thank you again! Just ordered the pens to try and do the repair myself. :thumbsup:

Best case, this works. Worst, I buy a new rim!

You're welcome. Hope it works for you. I'll be interested to find out how it goes.

Don't blame yourself. Blame your spouse.
