Curbing the bejesus out of my rims...

So these CSL reps are definitely meeting their match here at school in OR... I got a new place with a few guys here, and the only parking is on the street, and these tight spaces are driving me insane. It happens mostly when I back up to pull out, i crank the wheel too hard and end up scraping the curb... essentially making my rims look like trash.
Is it worth it to get them repaired if they are reps, and if there's a little rash on every wheel, does anyone know what it might run around?
I feel like such an amateur driver with curbed rims, but this month has been the worst parking month of my life... i feel like i'm 15 all over again. it sucks.

My Ride: needs more cowbell
cost to repair would probably be barely less than purchasing a brand new set.

^^ yeah thats what i figured, i mean, for reps its probably better to just keep them as beater wheels than to put any money into them...
oh well...
it just sucks curbing wheels. its one thing that just pierces my subconscience and makes me want to jump off a cliff, gah i hate it

I did the same thing. Just buy a new one and use the curbed one as a spare.
