Alloy Wheel Damage

I scraped a curb and put a 5" scrape along the edge of my right front. I'm out east in Virginia, but wonder if any of you folks have had experience with those "Wheel Doctor" type repair operations. Worth it? Any idea what the cost should run? Thanks for your help.

I did same and had my dealer (Sonnen Porsche) fix the scrapes. I'm in San Fran and it cost $180 to fix my Carerra 19 inch wheels.

Good Fix

I just fixed my rim (6-7inch rim rash) using this method. The results look good.

Depending on how deep the "rash" you could do it yourself. It's a few hours of work ... take the wheel off, sand it down mask and spray it...I''ve had good luck with a repair.
Email me at dak911(at)gmail.com and I'll send some pix

Hey, man! Long time no see. :-) Your dealer probably just outsourced it to a Wheel Doctor type place haha glad you got it fixed, though... I need to have my new ones all all polished up and the centers repainted, prob.

Unfortunately not in your neck of the woods. But useful in that I know they do good work so I know good repair shops can make it look better than new.
