your wheels are fine. don't search for cheap ways to change your car just for the sake of change.

You're right but I mean the wheels have been ran up a curb pretty bad (which I had no part in) so I was just wondering

Stop with the plasti-dip. It sucks. It doesn't stick, it fades in a few months and it doesn't peel off as easily as the magazines and car shows try to convince you. You'll be there for hours trying to get all the little specks off. I allowed myself to be suckered into this stupid plasti-dip fad and I've regretted every second of it since. I can only imagine it was conjured up by a bunch of high school kids trying to con their parents into "painting" their cars. "But MOM! It peels right off!!!" Yeah right.

Leave the plasti-dip for the tools.

So I'll definitely leave that alone but I kind of hate the marks from where it's been curbed. Any suggestions for that ?

there are various wheel repair kits with close to oem silver finish available at major auto parts stores. they do a pretty good job if you do a pretty good job.

I would paint more on the wheel than just the rim.
