21" S Line Wheel Touch-up Paint?
 
I have the 21" S-line wheels - does anyone know the touch-up paint code for them? Not sure the official name but they have the grey/anthracite finish on them. Wheel rashed two wheels yesterday, wanted to get them touched up. :eek:

Ljn21 - let us know which product you go with and how it worked. I just picked up a 2013 S-line with the same wheels and there are a few spots on them that I would like to fix.

Thanks for the info! Any idea if there is a topcoat/clearcoat that goes over it?

Will do, debating between the spray can and doing the entire face or just getting the touchup brush and just touching up the smaller spots...I am definitely not a paint expert and would assume if doing the whole wheel face that some prep of the surface would be required...also not sure if some sort of clear/top coat should go over it...just doing the brush touch up is probably easier and less work but also less satisfactory result....

I've been thinking of re-doing my 20" wheels and I like this colour. I have the split 5 spoke wheels and between the machined face and the very light grey background colour they show the brake dust like crazy.

Does this Anthracite colour help hide the brake dust at all? Or does it still look like a mess one da after cleaning the wheels?

I was thinking about going the brush route - just want something to tone down the imperfections bc I know the wife will end up hitting them again at some point. Once they get banged up a few times then I will look to have a pro redo them.

Kind of what I was thinking. I watched a few youtube videos for repairing and didn't seem to bad with some sanding wheels, dremel, sand paper...just have no idea how to get the paint to stick and stay on there once applied after that :) Ill probably try the brush and just touch up the spots for now so they are better hidden

Hmmm, I'm finally on a computer to where I can see pics and those wheels look lighter in color than the ones we have.
