Are you talking about the rubber door protector thingy's.

Just rip them off, then clean any goo off with wax and grease remover or a product callled 'goof off'. This stuff is really good, I have used it on mine and dad's car to remove glue.
Then just polish till shiny again, it shouldn't leave any ridges, it didn't on my car. Although I put mine back on cause bumholios kept banging their car doors into my doors.

Mate I have a corsair. Just rip them off if you want.
    On my car there is no lip only a indent in and then back out, but this is in the metal. To fix you would need a bit of bog, some metal sheeting to cover over the majority of the lip area(the bog is to smooth it out) and a bit of patience. It looks allright without the black strips.
   Have a look at the members rides section at some other cars, I think it is mostly TRX'S that don't have the rubber strip. Try and find Noss's white pintara T (??), it has white wheels, is white and has no rubber strips except on the bumpers. It looks absolutely fantastic.
