    Can anyone give me a suitable shade of silver (not grey, I've got 50 :lol:) or paint code for the factory alloys on my 2006 car please.
    I have just added another little scuff by sliding gracefully down the camber and kissing the curb with my front wheel:Angry:. No salt on our side roads!

    Thanks - never thought of that!:Foolish:

    Found a thread on Storm Alloys with some useful gen from CJ. Looks like the only colour listed is kaiser silver, no codes from Honda so scan and mix the only option.
    I asked on another thread on here and "rim wax" was suggested. What is that?

    Pete.

    SWrimwax.

    Alloy wheel sealant.

    Poor boys wheel sealant seems to be a popular choice

    don't know the specific Honda alloy wheel silver, but BMW Titanium silver or that Wurth wheel silver seem to be fairly close.

    Just gently rub it down with a bit of wet and dry paper then primer it and add the silver when dry.

    All on Ebay

    Bought a can of BMW Titanium Silver and tried it on a scuff in the time honoured way of squirting it into the lid and using an artists brush - I have to say its a pretty damn good match! :GoodJob:

    Thanks richsprint :Thumbup:

    If its a deep scuff, when the weather improves, mask off with masking tape, get a small tube of isopon body filler, just smear a little over the scuff, allow to dry, then sand with wet and dry paper until smooth, then prime and top coat.

    Makes a very passable budget repair.
