Scratched rims on an automobile is an almost inevitable occurrence. They can be caused by anything from running into a curb or driving over debris on the road. People who truly care about their car will be bothered by this, and some may even buy a whole new set of rims because they think it’s the only option. It is much easier and cheaper to fix a scratched rim than most people realize.

Step 1

Wash the entire wheel with dish soap and a sponge. Remove as much dirt and grease as you can. Rinse the rim with water.

Step 2

Pour paint thinner on one corner of the lint-free cloth. Scrub the scratched area of the rim with the wash cloth and be sure to remove any wax, dirt or anything else that may be on the rim. Wash it a couple times to be safe.
