how big are these nicks? because some touchup paint would cover things up rather well. you can get some from a dealer (expenive though), or an autozone. but wait. you have an LX i take it? that's pretty common with escort wheels. you could just get 'em powdercoated, that will make them look better than new.
but bondo isn't always the answer to everything. the sh*t cracks and/or falls off if hit or bent.

oh, hubs, my bad. :oops: i would probably use rustoleum. the stuff that bonds well with plastic. that would be your safest bet.

I'd probably sell you my GT wheels for 250 or so. They're from a 91, and i'm a fuggin poor college student, so hell, I'd put my car on blocks for a few weeks if someone bought 'em.

This may make me sound like a prick...I'll take that chance for a change.

They're cheap plastic wheel covers; even if they're new, they don't make your car look any better. You can't really be worried about scrapes in them, can you? Go find some at the boneyard or buy new ones or just buy a nice set of rims and throw those god-awful ugly little covers out. You can have mine - they're so ugly I refuse to drive around with them on.
