Friend drove car = friend curb rashed my SLP wheel


* yes wheels are dirty

After flipping out after seeing this its time to develop a bit of strategy to fix it and I would like some input from you guys too.

It doesn't seem deep nor is on the grey painted surface, just the polished area.

Here's the catch the wheel is clear coated, so if I sanded and polished it I guess I would have to re-clear it also? It doesn't look as bad as it does in the pic but it will annoy the hell out of me.

So what do you guys think is the best way to go at this.

The option of murder first comes to mind.

After that, I'm done.

Good luck.

Good luck either way you go, repair or murder!!! LOL Seriously though, good luck. You might be able to at least make it not as recognizable....

Here's another view: hardly visible from 3 ft away with flash on, I think polish or maybe even a compound may work

You would have been better off with the damage on the gray painted area. No simple(cheap) wheel repair for polished finish. Gonna cost ya few hundred if the damage is past the clear

Slp wants 600 for a set. I am sure u can get one from them for 200.
I did this to mine about a month after having them, still not sure what I hit, I think a large rock or something.

SLP told me I could buy one for $150 plus shipping, I still haven't though as I daily mine and something would probably happen again. It still bugs me but I have learned to live with it.

Good to know, I'm in driving distance from them so that may work. I could always use a full size spare.

The pain in the ass part would be remounting the tire again.

I say a wheel for a wheel, take his ride out and curb up one of his wheels, at least get some gratification out of it.

Good thing the G8 has a big trunk. Makes it easy to transport the body to the dump site. ;)
