I have a copper 2011 Suzuki SX4 Crossover. I bought it in May, and I accidentally put a pretty big scratch on one of the aluminum alloy wheels the other day when I hit the curb. Can this be repaired easily? Is there a way that I can buff or polish it out? The simpler the better. Thanks.

We had a guy that would come in and do magin on BMW wheels for $50. He used what I can only compare to bondo, and then painted the wheel. Looked as if nothing ever happened. I would check with and auto parts store to see if they sell anything like this, if not you can probably call a dealer see if they know someone.
