How Do I remove curb scratches on my rims?

I was driving during traffic hours down Vermont in LA, and i had to drop off some mails at the mail box. Suddenly i saw a huge dip that eventually scratched my front right wheel. I drive a '06 camry with is300 rims. The damage is pretty severe i think. Right now, all i have in my trunk is Scratch-X that ill give it a try after my work. Does anyone know how to remove the curb marks ? thanks a bunch

Hard to say without seeing the damage. Can you get us a photo?

If your wheels are clearcoated and you only scratched the clearcoat, then a paint polish might do it. If you actually scratched the metal, good luck with a paint polish! You'll need something way more aggressive...

Can you feel the damage with your fingers? Does your fingernail get 'stuck' in the scratch or scratches?
