Angry Already a scratch on my wheel!

I was washing my car yesterday and I noticed a scratch about an inch and a half long on the passenger side rear wheel. How it got there I have no idea, usually the first to get scratched is the passenger front wheel.

Anyway, I have the 18" wheels with the ultra bright finish, and you can actually feel this scratch with your fingertip...it's a thin white line on one of the spokes. I don't think there's anything I can do about this, but I just wanted to ask because maybe someone can throw out a possible way of fixing it.

Ehh probably not, maybe take it to a wheel shop and see what they can do, I have a 2 inch scratch like that but I can see it unless i'm down there looking right at it.

yea you can see this if you're standing within maybe 10 feet of the car, since it's a white line on the silver wheel.

Check to see whether it is something scratched onto the wheel instead of into the wheel. If it's something on, you may be able to buff it out.

If I run my fingernail across it I can feel that it's in the wheel itself. Guess I have to buy 19s now

Don't feel too bad. There was a bad pothole on I75 near toledo that bent my wheel. Factory wants 500 to get a replacement. Screw that. Not leaking so I will try and bend it back. If that doesn't work there is always ebay.
