Repair curb rash Alufelgen Hyper-Black

I had an unfortunate run-in with a curb in Drive Thru of my Local In-N-Out burger.
The rash is about 6 inches long on the outside border of the rim.
What would be the best way to fix this?

I've used the search... in regards to sanding, bondo, and primer and spray paint. I cant seem to find "HYPER BLACK" SPRAY PAINT.

What would be the closest color?

Thanks

Hyperblack is not a color, it is a mirror like superposition of colors. One coat is black, the other is glass-like metalic paint.

It cannot be properly blend, you have to do a complete repaint of the wheel.

the closest thing you can use to refinish is black chrome but it wont be a perfect match. if i ever curb my hyperblacks, i would just get them repainted.
