that sucks--I live in the city and worry about doing that everyday!! On my old car, I took a piece of real fine sand paper to rub the roughness of the gouge out and make it smooth, then used touch up paint and waxed it--it definitely looked better and it was a cheap fix to having the whole wheel redone--a couple more of those though and it will be worth having the wheel recoated!!

Then I need to wait for Gloss Clear Lacquer & Silver Wheel Lacquer which I ordered online, do the final print. They should be work fine.

I just used this how-to on Sunday to try and repair my poor curb rashed 19's. They are gunmetal grey however and I knew it would be a bitch to try and get the matching paint from Konig so I decided to paint the edge of the rim black instead with some wheel paint that I bought from the autoparts store. I gotta tell you it came out PERFECT! Like new. And you really can't even see the black edge unless you look REALLy close. I decided to go with black in case I need to do touch ups in the future. I still gotta do two more wheels that have some rash but they are no where near as bad as the rear passenger one that I fixed. I probably won't even need to bondo those. Just primer and paint should be fine.

I'll try and post pics tomorrow.

Are you talking about your stock rims?? If so then it shouldn&#39;t matter. What color did you paint them, the stock color silver? All you have to do is sand the parts you painted to remove the old paint and start over using the bondo method. Thing is the how-to stated to use this certain silver paint that all the Euro car rims are painted. Not sure if this applies to the mazda6 but i&#39;m assuming that it probably is the same color as all the euro rims.

I need to do this too... I scraped a front wheel on the castle wall curbs they put in some areas of St. Paul...

They are high and straight up and down... much more likely to cause scraping than rounded curbs.
