I actually called a mobile repair guy to come to my house he said he was not able to match that color even 90% and could actually make it look worse because he will try to blend it to a section of the wheel. He said it would actually look rough and not smooth like the factory finish which is a combination of lead paint and powder coat.
Ill see if I can find a pic of it after repair. Im not sure I took one, because it was perfect. Just checked, I have no after pic. "Wheels on Site" was the outfit that did the repair

They're sport wheels

If the shop ain't paying for it, just eat it and live with the tiny damage

It's not worth paying money to fix oem wheels

Live and learn. Like several have already mentioned... Remove the wheels yourself and take them to the shop. Politely let them know you are going to raise hell if anything is damaged. Then helicopter parent the tech doing the work. Most likely it will make the tech more cautious. If your presence makes the tech nervous, tell him to stop work immediately and get someone else.

I've caught the tech about to use a pry bar on the wheel weights. I've caught asymmetrical tires about to be mounted backwards. One incident long ago taught me I have to be vigilant in order to prevent stuff like this.

OP didn't ask you to cry for him, He just wanted to vent. Certainly you telling him you dont like the oem wheels, and they are not worth fixing should make him feel much better about it.
No need to be a ****.

Probably not worth my time at this point. It will cost me $100-$200 to get this wheel fixed. I will also need to take a day off work for this too.

If you have a lawyer friend (who won't charge you!), get them to write a threatening letter to the business. That will often cause them to send it to their lawyer who will in turn bill them hourly to review and assess it. Make their bottom line shrink as much as you can, I say.

I hate to encourage frivolous legal action. But I think as long as you don't bring the courts into the equation, you're not actively contributing the terribly litigious-happy society that is growing more and more.

My neighbor (does lighting for commercials and tv/movie sets) heard about a co-worker that got fired for saying "manhole cover" instead of "maintenance cover". So ridiculous ...

Probably more like "I want to take the cover off your manhole."
