stock rims

So my car was involved in a fender bender. Her car hit against the side of mine, and kept going for about 5-6 feet. Het bumper pushed against my rim, and scuffed it all up.

I really like the silver rims... for now. What do you guys think will be the best way to clean these up. All the rims are sorta scuffed, this one is just really bad.

Can i sand down the rims, and try painting them? What sort of paint should be used? etc etc

Yes, the wheel(s) can be sanded and repainted. Most auto parts stores should have a selection of wheel paints.

i dont know, but my inner tie rod is not shaped as the letter "L". It was 100% her fault, and the cougars hurting, but still ok. I'm gonna charge her to fix the repairs
