I would be interested in the answer to this as well since I have curbed one of my rims twice now and it is pretty much curbed all the way around the lip of the rim. It is not real bad, it just took the gold off the lip and left the curb markings in its place. I have gold Rota SDR's and I am trying to determine wether it would be cheaper to repair it or just buy a new rim.
