    There are THREE shades of Star Silver, as far as i've been told, none are a good match for for touching up the standard paint.

    I've never bought a can of paint from Halfords and the lid is exactly the same shade as the paint!

    Get them refurbed, costs about £50 per rim, but will get a full repair and full repaint.

    star silver I have. I always brush paint with a soft brush but I brush back and forth a few times, that appears to lighten the colour to a good match. Then a brush coating of clear laquer.
