Any number of places can handle the fix unless it's too,deep. It's moments like this one that I would take that wheel and leave it as a full size spare and then buy a new rim and tire setup to replace the scratched one. Just a thought. I think this truck is the first I have owned that doesn't have a full size spare. Just another cost cutting measure like the cheap leather ford has added to the line up.
I scraped 3 out of 4 of my rims over the first two weeks of ownership. Never scraped a rim in more than 25 years of driving before that. It was an awful feeling scraping them. I got them all fixed. Although it was not cheap. It cots me $175 per rim but they did an awesome job fixing them. The bad thing was they needed the rims for a month as they were super busy. It was OK because I just put my winter rims and tires on. I used Wheel Works, they are local and do an excellent job.
