Yesterday we had pretty nasty weather and I had to park my Spec V with almost no visibility, and somehow I clipped the sidewalk with the rim of my right front wheel. I got 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, which look like painted alloy to me, and now I got a nice 5-6 inch scrape on the rim from catching the sidewalk. Almost looks like someone took a rough grade file to the rim and the tire.

Question: is there a way of nicely covering this scrape up? I was thinking, maybe sanding down the rim until it's smooth with fine grade sandpaper, and then putting some kind of clearcoat-type paint, or lacquer. I'm just not sure if that's the right way to try and fix it, or maybe trying some kind of heavy duty scratch-X type product might be better. If anyone had this kind of problem and knows a good solution, please let me know.

Thanks !
