Question Damaged Wheel - How To Fix ?

My 2008 Mercedes Benz E-320 Bluetec had the passenger front and rear wheels scratched on a curb leaving deep grooves on the area closer to the tires.
Since these are expensive wheels, I am trying to find some good help in how to get it repaired. Those scratches look ugly specially when the wheels and tires are clean and shine.
This car use tires: size 225 - 55 - 16. I saw some videos on Youtube about this kind of repair but for very little scratches. Also I believe that the new painting after wheel repair done has to be a paint that matches with the other wheels. It seems like the wheels has some coating before original paint.
I appreciate some help.

Many larger communities have shops that specialize in the repair of aluminum wheels. The repair will probably involve machining the wheel and applying a new clear coat. Check your local area.
