Hi there, I've had a look on my paint system, and the only formula which looks like a possibility is paint code 205110 - Gris Metal Froid Effect.

You may need to go to a dedicated automotive paint suppliers for this, as Halfords may not have the same set-up as me.

If the damage is fairly localised, then I wouldn't get an aerosol, just a touch-up paint, thin it down a little and apply on the wheel - but remove it from the car first, and apply the paint whilst the wheel is lying flat.

It should disguise any damage for a fraction of the cost of refurbing.

Hope that helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
