wheel paint

Does anyone know where I can get the proper (or close) color for the wheels on my TR6? I would like to find it in spry cans if possible.

I had to buy 2 wheels and they are a different color of gray (silver?) Than the ones on the car. I would like to get them to match before I put the new tires on.


I guess I could just put the ones of the same color on the same side of the car!!! Maybe no one would notice. whataya think??

Thanks, Pete

I like the same side of the car idea, I don't know exactly what color you need but check out rust-oleum spray paints at the local hardware store, I have used it on both wire and steel wheels, and it is durable and does prevent rust on the wheels, even if some has started before the repaint.

You're looking for "Argent Silver". Moss has it, as does Eastwood. I actually saw some once at a Home Despot, but foolishly didn't pick it up. You might also try a good NAPA...

Hammered Silver is available in a spray can. RUST-OLEUM "7213 Silver" I bought it the local Ace Hardware. I am using it on the A arms and transverse leaf spring on my old sports/racer.

FWIW Hendrix Wire Wheel uses the Eastwood product, and have had quite a bit of good luck with it, so they tell me. I sure hope so, because thats what I bought.

If i recall, someone did a colour check for originality and found a mercedes colour matched the original the best. You might try a search for that thread.
I would want dupont imron paint for wheels since it is very tough and wheels are the roughest service for painted items.

I found Rust-o-lem hammered silver at Lowes. I use it to paint the wheels. They look pretty good.

The trim rings and the center caps cover most of the wheel anyway. I plan on a custom wheel later so they will do for now.

Thanks again, Pete
