dropped my wheel!

Dropped my wheel putting it into the truck after I had my winter wheels/tires put on. I have Focal F55s in black and there is a nice scrape with bare metal showing. Once the freezing temps cease I'll be putting them back on but I would like this repaired before then. Should I have these powder coated or take to the web and find a DIY method to fix them?

*Also I do not know how to post pictures on here???

**It's on the middle of the spoke - it's not curb rash

If it's that important to you, try getting them powder coated. Typically costs between 3 and $600 for a set of wheels.

If it were me, I'd sand the scrape down, tape off everything but that spoke, and try spraypaint. Depending on the coating on the wheels you can add clear coat or just leave it matte

If it bothers you that much, how much for a new rim?

A) paint the wheels yourself.
B) take it to a rim repair shop, drop it off. Come back later and give them your money. Wheel will be fixed.

I would not powder coat them. Powdercoating gives you a durable, good looking wheel but if you curb rash it it is almost impossible to match.

I would just start experimenting with paint. If the gouge is deep used JBWeld to fill it, put a good primer on it and then start trying paints.

You can take them to a wheel repair shop and they can have them repaired and painted.

DIY approach, some JB weld to fill in the damage. Sand the wheel back into proper shape. Degrease, prime, sand, degrease, tack cloth, paint.

Hard to guess what I would do without seeing it. https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=780


I know how I would fix most damage though.


Available in about 6 shades of "black" from high gloss metallic right down to dead flat.

Prep is vital.
Oh and use the enamel not the acrylic.

Ouch I know your pain. On my old STI, I once dropped one of the OEM forged wheels on its face during a tire rotation. There are shops that specialize in wheel repair. I'd go there. If I remember correctly, the cost is only about $100-120. Not too bad for a quality repair. Make sure to check reviews first and see pictures of their work if possible.
