Fixing slightly curbed wheels?

I'm sure I'll get far more responses here, as wheels, are wheels. I stupidly lightly curbed mine, very light damage but still bothering as heck to me esp as they are SVT wheels, has anybody here tried to repair their own wheels or has any recommendation for repairing the lip area? Thanks.

Sounds a little goofy, but this works. Through trial and error I think original JB Weld works best. Don't use the quick setting stuff as its about half as strong. Fill in the rash. Let it set over night. Sand it to match the shape of the lip. Paint. I've fixed wheels like this and it holds up well.

Sooo...any idea of what paint to use? This has been the biggest issue I have found with ANY GT-500 wheels, let alone w\ SVT, the paint is unknown.

If you just want to make it less noticable you could use a dremel and smooth it out and polish, I've done this with the family car.

Hopefully not enough to require rebalancing the wheel....
