OUCH! Curb rash!

I am such an idiot! As careful as I've been to not scrape up the gray wheels on my F Sport I took my car to a drive through car wash and apparently scraped off some paint.

Anyone have recommendations for touch up paint for these wheels?

Nothing more than a wheel repair man... unless you are artistic and feel confident coming up with a creative fix as far as matching and mixing colors ha. BTW, if you have the 2011 F-Sport 18's, I love those wheels.

Try the dealer for a repair. I had really horrible curb rash on one of my front wheels and it was a flat $150 per wheel repair price. They have an outside person that comes in and does the work. The wheel looks brand new after the repair.

Curb rash is a bitch man Some wheel shops are able to fix it, look around for a local one.
