Curb Rash -Matte Black Touch Up Paint?

So pissed I was a bit too close to the sidewalk and ended up curbing my matte black wheel. Now it has a good curb rash and you can see the paint is off and just showing silver. Can someone please recommend me a product or advice on how I can possibly just touch it up and cover the crub rash with black paint or something? I did some searches and saw some people actually use a black sharpie? Does that even work.

Go to autozone or auto store and buy trim black or just matte black touch up paint... If you can't find that spray some spray paint on cardboard and use a little paint brush to Dab it and touch up the wheel. It's pretty simple man don't over think it lol

Black Sharpie marker ftw!!! Worked on some small rash spots on my last set of wheels like a charm!
