Yah, it hurts but you'll live. It's only a surface scratch - you didn't loose a big chunk of your rim or tire so it should hold air a-okay.

Ouch Marty! If you want it fixed...take it by a wheel repair shop (Panther?) and get a quote...can't hurt to ask costs.

panther is good - they do a great job - way better then nu-brite - we use panther alot at work (bodyshop) they charge about $160 unless it need massive machining but you should be fine, it doesnt look that bad. bring it by , they may even do cash jobs but im not sure....
