Friends drove my f56 for nye as a designated driver and ended up curbing the passenger side front wheel... pictures attached.

Any way to touch it up or make it less notice without removing and refinishing the wheel?

Looks easily repairable.

I had mine done at a local place and had a chat with the guy afterwards.
Sometimes they have to break the bead of the tyre off the rim in order to polish out the marks depending on how bad the rim is.

Then they fill and repaint. Mine looked terrible but it was repaired as good as new.

Should be no need to take the wheel off, just find a local place to do it.
Mine only cost £45 (UK)!
So not as bad as you might think.
I guess you could try and do it yourself, but to be honest I don't think its worth the hassle.
