Curb Rash on Black Rims

Attempting to fix some curb rash on my rims and was wondering if anyone had used this:

http://www.amazon.com/Alloy-Wheel-Re.../dp/B007QC21PC

or if you guys had a better suggestion for fixing curb rash on black rims.

The damage on the rims is pretty noticeable. I plasti-dipped the effected areas as a quick fix but was hoping to go a more permanent route without having to spend $2-300 to have them repaired.

Thanks

This. I used a shadowline gloss black touch up pen (yes, somehow I found one, though I can't remember for the life of me where.)

If it's bad enough, get them refinished for 150- 150$ a wheel (at dealer or a shop that specializes.)
