Scrapes and digs in wheel: replace?

I recently had the 929 towed on a "stand" (don't ask...lost both keys and it had to move out of the garage for the winter) and the front wheel bracket on the truck cut into the front rim (and made a line on the tire). For those in the know, is there a zero-defect rule --that is, one dig = replace it-- or can I just emery-paper the roughness and continue on my way? I would prefer not to spend $1500 on wheels plus another $275 on tires this year if I can avoid it.

Some help would be great.

Yeah.



If it's in the finish only, no problem. A big gouge...maybe worth replacing if you're the paranoid type as it will be a stress riser and there's a slim chance it could cause a crack.
