The Official curb rashes thread

Hi folks,

I didn't have a time to take photos of mine so I'll start with another E90post member's photos. Sorry about that buddy.





You guys know if this is fixable? What's the technology behind the barrel? Have you fixed yours? How much did it cost and where did you do it?

I ma pretty sure this thread could be helpful for a lot of members if the knowledgeable folks chime in.

I'll take shots of mine within 24-48 hrs, but the picture is pretty much the same, if not worse!

It's fixable. Someone just got their BBS LM's fixed here in California.

They are not mine, mine are worse! Show your rashes and fixes please. Let's talk about that annoying problem and the possibilities.

Its still there since i have a chrome lip, people told me they are not fixable......its fixable if you have polished lip.
But some guy quoted me $94 +tax to take off the wheel, fix the curb rash, and then put my wheel back.... I said eff it cuz $94 is very cheap to fix this, lol!

I think you have a chrome lip, but ask whoever you bought the wheels from or if you still have the papers that came with your wheels, you can call DTM and tell them your order number and they should tell you wether you hava a polished lip or chrome lip!

hope this helps

Not true. Chrome lip iforged are true 2 piece and not welded. You can replace the barrel. Polished lips are welded thus you can only cosmetically fix them which on a polished lip does not look good IMO. This isnt like the polished lips on 1 piece wheels.

If you dent the polished lip bad you have to replace the wheel
