I took a small spill today. Fortunately, there wasn't any serious damage to the bike, except some pretty nasty gouges in the front wheel, right on the braking surface. Makes a slight ticking noise when I get on the front brake. The gouges are about 1/8 th of an inch deep (guess-timating). How serious are they? Wheels are still true, and I know that it will wear out the pads quicker, is that all. Any ideas on how to smooth them out? Smooth the edges of the scratches with steel wool?
Wheels are Shimano R-550's
