Default Repair or Replace???

Hit a rock in the road hidden in a shadow. Hard to tell from the picks but about 1/16 of an inch is removed from outside lip. The inside lip is not effected and no damage is present in the shape.

That can be repaired without a problem. A few shops in my area will turn your wheels overnight. It might take longer on yours because of the gloss finish.

I agree with the repair - however, I would wait a little and make sure nothing else happens. Just my opinion of course, but I always feel like something else will happen shortly and as soon as I get it fixed I will need to do it again.

I was feeling that it is repairable but also feel like you; what other **** is likely to fall if a rush off and get it fixed. Still hate to see a blemish on my mistress.

Thanks to all.....

It's a piece of metal,there's nothing to fail. It gets stripped down of paint to the bare metal using a sand blaster. Then the curb rash is filled and sanded to the original shape. Then comes paint,clear coat...whatever...and they're being baked in high temperature ovens.
After that,the tire is mounted and balanced.
No brain surgery here...

Repair and see if you like it. If not, then replace it.

Repair should cost around $120. So, why not give it a try?

yeah, selling the car is another option to using permanent marker. I am as serious as the op asking this kind of question.
