DIY driveway curb ramp?

Ok, so I just moved into a new house that has a steep driveway with a rolled curb and now I have to pull in at like .5 mph at an angle otherwise my fender scrapes. I would prefer not to spend any more than $200 on a solution but it needs to look nice. Anyone know of any inexpensive DIY solutions besides concrete? I don't like how concrete looks and the one's I've seen in my neighborhood are all crumbling. I need something that will hold up and looks good. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.. Thanks!

We could use some pics. Is it the fender that scrapes or the bumper?

I'm not sure what a rolled curb is ?? http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html
Normally the city owns/controls the driveway apron so it's likely any modifications would need their approval.

btw - welcome to the forums!

The few that I have seen other than concrete or asphalt are a sheet of steel plate. Some have a vertical rib down the center for extra support but I'm not sure that's any better looking than concrete.
