alloy wheel repair

Bought some used alloy wheels from a gent on this forum and a couple have some serious curb rash (rock rash?). Buyer beware aye?
Anyhow, is there a way to repair this? without spending more than a new wheel would cost?
I checked with a local company and they wanted a $100 bucks a wheel to repair?!?!?!?
Does that sound right?

Put them on your jeep and rub them on smoother rocks!

These aren't curb rash
