Hey guys, I need a little help. I ended up curbing my rim a little bit after a long work day and a long drive from NJ to Pittsburgh. Does anyone know the exact paint spec for the rims?

I don't know the details I'm afraid. That said, alloy refurbishment in the UK costs about UK£30 per wheel for a finish that is imperceptible from original factory finish. I thought the repair was pretty involved, including rubbing down the wheel and filling the damaged section, matching the colour perfectly then lacquering the alloy.

You could always swap the spare for the damaged wheel if the sight of it is bothering you that much, and a brand new alloy crops up on Ebay for £40 regularly so sure it will be the same if not cheaper, on your side of the pond.

Chalk it up to one of those annoyances!

hmmm...never thought about swapping it for the spare. Good idea. I will get a silver paint that comes close and fill in the area and then swap it

Must be nice. My Chrysler 300M came with a full size spare mounted on a chrome alloy rim that matches the rest of the car. OTOH, my Santa Fe came with the infamous "Space Saver Spare" donut on a cheap steel rim. I swapped that out for another cheap rim with a 16" tire that matched the OD of the 18" tires it came with. When I drive off the paved roads up in the mountains, if I blow a tire, there's a good chance that the little "Space Saver" would last about 30 seconds.

Well, I checked last night and it is not a matching rim :( Any idea where I can find the paint code to match the paint?
