DIY Curbed Wheel Fix - Was It Worth It?

 

 

Quote

NICE!!!! so for those who kenna kerb rashes on your rims, the other consideration is to get it repaired. Don't change when you can repair!

But I think in Singapore context, it will be more cost effiecent to send to a local spray painting shop for the job. 😬

Curb rash juz gotta treat as normal wear n tear

As long as rim not warped or suffer from high speed wobble, life goes on

Change rims - $800 - $3000

Change car - Starting from $40K.

Change missus - Half of your assets gone.

Propose have it repair after more than 3 rims damages.

Check for warp condition / hairline cracks before decision on the repair n have a new coat of paint (new colour) for a refreshing look too

I've fixed curb rash on my rims before. Just use some quick drying putty, sand down, dried over night and spray or brush paint the next day. Super easy. Couldn't find the fix the day i sold the rims. lol.

One thing is the rims cannot chrome as i cant find a good paint can that can reproduce the chrome look. The is the reason (other than i hate chrome rims) i do not look into chrome rims when changing. Other colour like black, grey and gun metal are easier to DIY patch.

I dun wanna add any unnecessary weight or stuff that might cause wheel wobble from it being unbalanced

Besides, this doesn't prevent curb rash n might land up looking worse w damaged plastic/rubber lining dangling from the rims

Macaim trying to protect the leather seats by covering up w a T-shirt which has holes n looking worse overall.....

T-shirt with holes are known as ventilated tee...good for our climate when park under the hot sun. 😁
