    Unhappy Help! Paint on my rim!

    To put it bluntly, I tried squeezing into a space between a curb and an SUV. I scuffed the edge of my rim on the curb and now that misstep is showing blatantly in the form of red curb paint.
    I'm "pretty sure" that the rim itself is fine, not that I can tell until the paint is taken off. But I need to know how to remove the red paint properly.
    Gah!

    Is there any special recommended way to use the product? Any favorite cloth applicators, toothbrush maybe? I'm really clueless and do appreciate the help.

    Step one: Buy polishing compound
    Step two: Read directions
    Step three: Follow directions

    Simple. Any product you buy for your car, use per the manufacturers directions.

    Yup. Just don't be afraid to use a lot. I killed my bumper on the side of my garage and got a huge amount of paint transfer. It took a lot of compound and a lot of time but i got all of the white paint from my garage off of my bumper. I live by the stuff!
