Just purchased some used AMG 19" split rim alloys to use as a summer wheel, I believe they are about 2 months old (like new), but two of them have each a very small kerb mark on the rim. Anyone know if these wheel repairers out there can do a repair on diamond cut wheels. I dont really want to refurb the whole wheel, as they are quite young, but being a fussy sod, find this damage annoying to look at.

only way to repair them properly would be to refurbish the whole wheel, the diamond cut finish is done with rotation so a localised repair wont work. expect each wheel to cost about £80 each to be done properly.

Thanks jibcl500, Half suspected that would be the answer, but had to ask. Think I will live with the damage (its only minor), for the moment, and refurbed them when I potentially add some more damage

The wheel can be turned while intact, and the taken apert and the outer section can be re lacquered

Genuine AMG 2 part are very thick on the out rim, so no problem
