    Anyone know of a marker or touchup for alloy wheel curb rash that would last beyond the first rain. Im not ready to go for full on refurbishing on my graphite 17s yet.

    I guess it depends on what color the wheels are. A friend used a Sharpie on his wheels and it was less noticeable. (Sharpies come in a lot of colors.) For my Dodge, I found some touch up paint, spayed it onto a bit of slick cardboard, then use a thin tip brush to fix some chips.

    INteresting! Are folks buffing the rash out before applying the various coatings? I can't believe My Darling has scraped one(at last check) wheel on our Elle...it's a SMALL car!!! (The RDX had three of the four with a nasty rash )

    I didn't buff mine out... didn't want to weaken the rim. I have a very sharp turn & "square" curb... learned to drive like the car is 3' longer.

    On some of my older cars. There was a rock chip, or premature clear coat peeling. I use my wife’s clear finger nail polish. If it really bothers you. A wheel repair shop, charges $80-120 to fix, a damage alloy wheels. They can even come out to your home. To preform the service.

    My wife use to tear up the white lettered tires, on our Jeeps. I took a black sharpie to touch up the torn up black around the white lettering.

    I read on another forum that Dupli-Color Chrysler Graphite CACC 0414 is close to perfect match for Abarth 17 Hyper Black wheels. I bought some, but have yet to try it.

    Yes that's the part number. Not sure why the link gave that other gray.
