anyone know of any remedies for light curb rash?
i'm not looking for something to fix it, cause i think thats impossible.
but is there a way to buff it out, conceal it, or even something i can put on it so its not as noticeable (touch up pen)

i'm an idiot.

you could maybe try using a 'file' (sp) to make it smoother?
thats exactly what i was thinking too. i mean, the curb rash that i have is very small, but it kills me that the car is only 3 months old.

well i guess this is an excuse for me to get rims.

thanks for your help.

There was a guy who actually did fix the curb rash on his own. He used something to patch up the scratches, sanded it, then painted it with spray paint that matched the stock rim color.

From the photos, it looked like a near perfect job.

alot of DIY's for rim's

also if your THAT worried about rash on the curbs you COULD get a tire with more "puffy sidewall" however doesnt ALWAYS help...

I'm still confused how the tsx doesn have the reverse curb view mirror

for minor curb rash wet sand with 1500-2000 grit paper, follow with primer. Use Honda SSM paint to touch-up and follow up with some clear. I had to fix one of mine and used an air-brush. Now you could never tell where it was.
