ZCP Curb Rash **Graphic Content**

So, I curbed my right rear wheel while pulling out of a parking lot . I have attached photos of the damage. What I want to know is, can it be repaired??? If so, any recommendations on who can repair this type of damage?

I really hope it can be repaired because it looks just awful. Luckily, I just switched to my winter set, so the stock wheels will be in storage for the next 5 months.

Thanks!!

RimPro in Tewksbury, MA will be able to fix it for you. They are pretty quick with stuff like this.

Wouldn't help in this situation. This was a rear wheel. I was pulling out of a parking lot, taking a right turn onto the street. The rear right wheel hit a curb. The streets are very narrow here.

Not exactly. You drove it into a curb. I can give you a hard time because I did exactly the same thing two weeks ago. A local wheel repair shop fixed it for $100, and it is absolutely not noticeable, perfect job.

Did you take photos? Interested to see what the repair looks like.

Definitely repairable but damn looks like it took a good chunk off.

No photos. I knew from previous experience it would be perfect, and it is. You cannot see any imperfection.

I did the same thing to my car last week. Pissed me off but I have new wheels coming soon so it's ok. Mad because I won't be able to sell them for as much now haha.

Funny that I had my 08 for two years and never curbed the wheels and the 11 I hit it within a month..

Collision Wheel Center in Bath, PA. Look them up on the web. You can probably find reviews as well. I've had track wheels refinished there before. Matched BBS silver perfectly.

i curbed my right front G2s a few weeks ago. Not terribly bad, less than an inch and hardly noticeable but still disheartening every time I go to clean them.
