Black rim hit by kerb

Rear rim hit by kerb while driving out the narrow car park.
Side of the rim can see the line of inner white silver color out of the black rim
Anyone can help on how to "save" the it?

Sad to see that. 😕

Exactly right, there should be someone in Spore that will take damaged wheels and fix them. You have a pretty good car culture there so I would think someone does wheel repair. We have them everywhere here in So Cal. The place should be able to heat up the wheel and reshape the rim, then they should also be able to re-true the wheel, which basically means make sure the wheel is perfectly round again with no wobble or vibration.
