    Default Original paint for alloys

    Does anyone know where to get a good match of the above. There is a lot of big metallic in the paint, looking to re spray an alloy.

    Hi the Vauxhall wheel colour is called star silver, I use to refurbish alloys, I bought my materials from a company in West Yorkshire called Auto Paint. They mixed it for me. You could take the wheel in to double check as if they have been refurbed before they may be slightly different colour

    does it depend on the wheel though? I know the penta alloys are a totaly different finish to all the others.

    Star silver 2 is what most places use to refurb alloys...

    But its not the actual colour for most standard alloys, there's a few sellers on ebay that do the actual colours for standard vauxhall alloys and others. if you e-mail them the model and size etc. was looking at some a few weeks back.

    not sure on the star silver colour for the alloys? my car is star silver and ive had 4 different sets of oem vx alloys on my motor and none of them matched the car(colour wise) also ive got some touch up paint for the car(which matches the car perfectly star silver) but tried it on the alloys and its totally different colour. surely not all of the sets of alloys i have owned have been refurded at some point in their lives.
