    Did you slide into a curb or just drive to close to it? – JPhi1618 Apr 4 '19 at 19:43
  • That's some serious curb rash :o) – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 4 '19 at 20:36
  • Given the acute angle which the curb interacted with the wheel, it doesn't appear to have damaged the bead of the tire in any way. While not quite as good as new, I highly doubt it will have damaged the structural integrity of the wheel, and it's probably safe to keep driving on it. – the_storyteller Apr 5 '19 at 18:05
  • "Do you think there could be more damage other then the rim scratched" No, but my xray vision is not working right now, – Moab Apr 6 '19 at 0:40
  • The front wheel alignment could have been altered, which is something you may not notice until you're driving at freeway speeds. If you're interested in repairing this damage, check out KwickSilver. – BillDOe May 6 '19 at 21:24

I damaged a wheel once, it did not look nearly as bad as the picture. The wheel was bent and could not be balanced although one could not see the gradual bend (After I had ground and polished the aluminum wheel).
