    yes a bit of metallic filler, moocho rubbing down then a paint - good as new.

    I would think thats so small and so near the edge you could just mask a few inches of rim and spray it ford stardust silver - will be almost invisible.

    most of us probably have no idea what anything costs in Romania ! In the UK £40 for a smart repair, maybe £60 - £80 for a full wheel refurbish.

    I paid £60 for a full refurb - or you can buy an e-tech kit for £25.

    the kit does about 4 wheels should you do it again.

    It does look easily repairable yes - unless there's a crack going into the width of the rim, then you'd probably have to get a new one.
    Allow wheel refurb specialists usually do an amazing job if they think it's fixable.
