Hi all,

A column happened to graze my front wheel arch while a family member was driving (no fault / blame!). Is there a way to remove scratches from this? I've seen the heat trick for fading and minor scratches, but this removes the texture, too. Better to bite the bullet and buy a new one for $125?

Can you please provide an image of the scratch so we can assess if it is really fixable or you should consider getting a new one.

Well, there's a way to remove the scratches from your rims. For me, these are the steps to manually remove the scratches from your rims. First, you must clean it first in order to remove the dirt and particles on it. After you wash it, dry it so you will be able to apply solvent. Second, Pour a light solvent on the scratched area, rub it properly and rinse it. Third, buff the area with sandpaper in order to remove the scratches. And then, apply a metal polish to the area and rub it properly. It will level the scratches of the rim. And finally, apply some sealant in order to act as an additional protection and to make it look great. I hope that this will help you
