Re: curb rash

Ya if you get a curb mark on a chrome rim the only thing you can do is have it re-finished. The concrete has taken off the top layer surface and more than likely gouged the metal. The gouges will need to be repaired/ground out then the surface re-chromed and polished.

Also check to make sure the rim hasn't been bent!!

Re: curb rash

Try body shops or tire shops. They have to have some place they send the rims out to for repair. Insurance companies always want refinish/repair done, never replace.

There are lots in Winnipeg who do it and we are a lot smaller of a city
