Ripped the shite out of a 215 rim

so tired this morning on way to work
pulled into the kerb and s-c-r-a-p-e
ripped about 20% of the edge off a 215 rim

Does anyone know if these can be polished up?
I havent actually hit any of the internal of the rim, just the outer edge

If I cant fix it, its another expense to incur next week!

We did something very similar on our Z8 Alpina...the day we bought it and brought her home. The same day!!!

We had it repaired at the BMW dealership, and it cost about $150.00 USD. The dealership said most luxury car dealers use wheel repair services, so they can sell high end pre-owned cars that have little or no blemishes. It can be done. We can't even see where it was repaired. Sorry, and Good Luck!!
