If it's not too bad you might be able to have it repaired.

That's not THAT bad of curb rash. Find a competent wheel repair shop in your area man, they should be able to take care of that no problem.

Oh snap. Is the chrome clear coated? If not I would wetsand thats shit out and repolish the lip. Looks fixable to me. I would think you could get 90% of the sctaches out and it would be no where near as noticeable.

edit Im a dumb ass. there chrome not polished alum. sorry Im dumb its late

Are you sure that lip is chrome and not just polished? I thought that most painted center wheels had a polished lip, not chrome. :shrug:

now that I look at it again it looks like polished alum to me. Chrome would want to flake off after it was scratched like that. Some times they clear polished alum wheels so that the finish last longer. Im thinking you could wet sand it out.

Get some farther away shots of the damage and we might be able to help you out more, looks like clear to me. You might be able to sand it out and reclear it.

If it is cleared you will have to strip the clear off the whole lip, wet sand the scratch out, reclear it or just rock it with out the clear. If you choose to get it cleared again I would let someone shoot it will really good automotive clear dont use the shit in a spray can or you will regret it.
