Refinishing CL-S Rims with horrible curb rash

So I got me a set of CL-S rims for a suuuuper cheap price, mostly because each rim has a good amount of curb rash. Can these rashes be refinished so the rim looks new again or at least make the curb rash barely noticeable? Is there even such a thing that refinishes alloys?

probably would have been better if you jus bought ones that were in good condition..its really expensive to get rims fixed..i think when i went somehwere they said like 150 per rim..heres an article on how to DIY. i was thinking about it but been too lazy http://www.robsaudiworld.com/wheelrepair.htm

you know this is a pretty stupid question...and i feel like i should know this but. Are the AV6 rims painted?

because that tutorial only works if you have painted rims.

The CL-S rims don't look painted at all. So I don't think this kit will work for the them.

Two rims on my car a really bad but it would just cost to much to get them fixed . If I could find 98-00 rims for like 100 bucks for a set in good condition I would buy them.

Would paint even stick well to unputtied part of the rim?

it seems that would be an easy way to get whatever color rims you wanted, I like my rims though

Like the V6 allloy rims the CL-s I believe are machined, it looks awesome new but.... if you curb it or scratch it. It is expensive as hell to fix. I got quotes $500 to fix my stock V6 Ex that I scratched.
Not worth fixing. IMO

I've heard this place is pretty good:

You can't beat the price $109 per rim. They will charge you to remount and balance.

go to your local wheel retailer or tire store, im sure they have a some sort of wheel refinishing service they use.
hope this helps

i know this because i work at a tire store and when we mess up customers wheels we need to send them out, also people bring their wheels to us to get fixed as well.
