Default Curb rash question

Got some curb rash on OEM rim. It's about 8-10in length. What are my options other than buying a new rim? Will a rim repair make it look OEM again?

Rim repair would be your best option to make it look OEM again and will cost less money.

if the oem rim is painted by Lexus, the wheel repair shop might not be able to match the color 100%.

Like most good body shops, a good rim shop will computer-match the paint and you won't be able to tell the difference.

If you have it repaired by the right shop, you won't even know there was damage there...

Check with your lexus dealer
