Wheel polishing

Well I made a u-turn in my 08 Dually last week and I ended up scraping the front wheel against a gutter/curb. Needless to say, it put a half moon deep scrape across half of the wheel. Instead of taking the rim to a wheel repair shop, I decided that I would just switch it with one of the rear rims (by flipping the scraped rim around and so on with the front.

The exterior of the wheels are polished but the inside is dull in comparison. How hard is it to polish the wheels to match the other side or should I bite the bullet and get the original repaired for 130 bucks?

Get it repaired, I think you will spend a lot of time trying to buff it out to look like the others.

The front aluminum wheels are not interchangeable with the rear. That was embossed on the wheels of my old F350. Get it fixed.

and the factory wheels have a clear coat on them so they dont dull, so after you polish the back side they wont stay polished with a repolish every once in a while.
