    so the gf curbed the shit out of one of her wheels on her '08 G37. it's not all the way around the lip, but a small 3 inch stretch and about a 1.5x2.5" area on on of the spokes. it looks pretty bad because she scraped on something black, so in the gouge, it looks like there is grease in it. infiniti said they can fix it for $250.

    I can't seem to find a website to buy wheels, but is that fair to fix a $1000/wheel?

    wheel looks like this...

    There's wheel repair guys. Usually 90/wheel. they will grind it smooth and usually have a matching paint to touch it up or respray the wheel.

    I've found rim repair to be expensive. never had a scrape fixed, so I'm not sure. bent rims on the other hand, I've found it's worth it to get a new set of rims.

    thats what i was thinking, i'm just worried they wont be able to make it look factory again. the car is less than 2 months old. little asian girls cant see over the hood so they hit shit. the only thing i don't like about the G is that the side mirrors don't tilt down when it's in reverse like a lot of bmws and mercedes do.
