I wish. I've been looking into repairing mine and one place came back with a price of $295 a rim. For tiny nicks, not even major curb rashes!! They claimed they would have to make a whole new program for them for the machine, then run them through one at a time, and that the BBS Diamond Silver color is extremely hard to match, blah blah blah. Another mobile repair guy quoted me $95/rim but when I emailed him again asking about the paint matching I never heard back.

Maybe it's because there isn't really any shop in the area that really cares about aftermarket parts like in SoCal or SoFlorida?
