Can I make repairs to a rental car?

I’m having a bad week. I totaled my regular car and have a rental car while it is in the shop being repaired. I declined the LDW from the rental company because my credit card said they had it covered. Then, today, I think I rubbed up against a curb and there is a scratch on one of the rims. Pretty big.

Can I get the rims repaired or replaced on my own? I’m pretty sure it will be cheaper to do that than to pay any ridiculous amount that the car rental place will charge once/if they see the damage.

Are auto shops allowed to do work on rented cars?
