If it's just light scratches then a polish that you would use on your car's paint might work. Modern wheels are just painted and clear-coated like the car's body, so the same sort of products will work.

If you hit a kerb (curb), though, that probably did more than just make some light scratches. The only way to fix "curb rash" is generally to send the wheels to a wheel repair shop that specializes in such things.

Where are you located? Maybe someone near you can take a look and offer some advice.
