Not sure about MD, but in some states (no fault). You will pay the deductible upfront and the insurance company's will fight it out and possibly refund your deductible if fault can be determined.

I tried that paint for a chip in my Overland wheel and it didn't match up well at all. Save your money. I even tried having it repaired by a wheel repair outfit and I wasn't happy with the results, even though they tried to correct it 2 more times. I gave up an ordered a new Overland wheel, tire and TPMS. I wound up putting the repaired wheel back on my 2012 WK2 Overland that I traded in last week.

By the way, I do have this wheel assy for sale with only 1800 miles on it.

Pennies aren't as rewarding as a handful of barb wire twists sitting in the glovebox with your second amendment... after all, it's self defense.

Dude.. you live in the DC Metro area.. get over it.. it sucks.. trust me, I know, but it's a minor bit of rim rash, and driving around the DC area.. you are bound to get more.

I have massive asthetic damage to all 4 of my rims as a result of pot holes, ground down roads and having to change lanes to exit (I hate under construction roads), and all sorts of other crap that damages wheels.. granted.. my car has slightly lower profile wheels then your jeep.. but until I sell my car.. wheel damage is par for the course in this area.

That and around $1k per rim (dealer pricing).. I found its not worth it.

I have used this company before. They are nation-wide so you can Google the location near you. Runs around $80-100 and they can come right to your lot at work or home to do it.

I no longer swerve for folks like this.

Caused me to wreck a pristine Dodge Ram 2500 diesel several years ago - Honda carried on without issue... My insurance got to pick up the $14k repair bill, and I got the increased rates.

Let em hit me. Screw it. I'll blow my horn, maybe. Otherwise...it's their damned fault... and their damned insurance that will pay. No more nice guy from me.

Sucks.

if you really want to get back at him, crush up an old spark plug with a hammer, keep the porcelain bits handy and aim for his windows...

Sorry to say but that would not have probably happened with the 18's, but you can get it repaired.

While I get where you are at, I would not hit him to save the condition of a rim. I would be upset every time I see it but knowing my right/left panel on the front has been damaged and repaired I would be more pissed. Let alone having to stop, talk to the idiot and deal with w/e else would be worse. Then again, rims are just rims to me. First question a buddy of mine asked me when I got this car was, "when are you putting rims on it?" I told him I dgas and will driving in stuff that will f up rims.

so, what did you do? I also live in the DC Metro area and pretty much got the same damage to my 20" chrome rims in my 2013 Summit. Totally sux. I heard people say to clean it with rubbing alcohol, fill the gaps with clear nail polish and cover with chrome paint.

Did you hear back from the company you emailed?
