Default The New Car

He purchased an in stock new sedan for wife. What a nice car.

Unfortunately she scrapped one of the fancy rims. First week. On a curb.
$750.00 for a new replacement rim.

The wife went to new car dealer once the new factory rim came in. The new car dealer mounted/balanced the new rim/tire.
On the way out - leaving the new car dealership. She scrapped the new replacement rim.

What is the question? There is no question. Just an observation.

An intentional scraping of the other three will bring symmetry to the vehicle.

Try that; it's cheaper.

It is much less expensive to trade in a car than it is to trade in your….

As a famous Disney song teaches us…”Let it go…” is a wise choice.

there are companies out there that repair curb rash on rims, half the price or less than the cost of that new rim

That first scar is always painful!
After that, it goes from mint to just a good used car.
