    Default Paint colour for wheels

    Had a bit of a boo-boo on a recent trip to Eastbourne.

    Anyone know what the paint code is for the wheels, I want to try and cover over the grazes (and no, it wasn't me driving!)

    Not sure what 'style' of wheels I have, pics of Siggy can be found here - http://xorro.xpmg.co.uk/vehicles/signum/

    Thanks!

    It's going to be a variation of Star Silver I think - just exactly which one is the question! There are four variations IIRC.

    Somewhere I saw a good how 2 on repairing them, it may be in our section as a link, but if not try a google on how to repair alloy wheel's, and I'm sure it's on the 1st page of results, hth.

    Here's a link for a kit

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LEXUS-Alloy-Pa...QQcmdZViewItem

    still trying to find the how 2.

    Haha, got it, this is all you need http://www.autopia-carcare.com/realwhda.html

    Thanks peeps

    Duncan, we were only there 2 days. Had tea and cakes in the Grand - cost a blumin fortune!

    The mota is Star Silver and I have a touch up stick for that, so might just use that.

    Star silver is not a match for the alloys, BMW Arctic Silver is apparently very close for vxr alloys, dunno if they are the same shade as the others though ...
