paint code for supersport alloy

hello. just bought a 2003 alfa 147 2.0 lusso selespeed.

with some alfa supersport wheels(3 large holes on them),

i hope that is the correct name for them

one needs refurbing but would like to spray it myself, and laquer.
does anyone know the paint code for the silver spray to use.

i know what people will say dont do it yourself but iv done some before on another car and they looked good.


dont want to spray all of them but want it to match.

or if not , how could i find it out?

ps, i like to save money and do stuff on cars myself, just changed the timing belt and balancer shaft belt, to be honest there was plenty of room so was not that bad but is always hard when you are getting to know the car, belts iv done before are pug 205 gtti 1.6 and fiat coupe 16v turbo - both twice.
i dont know how to work this site yet but i hope someone see`s my post. dont even know what a thread is.

Re: paint code for supersport alloy

I had my old 147's wheels refurbished by Chipsaway. According to them, Alfa don't release their wheel paint codes, and there's no way to find them out, so the only way is to match it by sight.

Welcome along

Re: paint code for supersport alloy

im a bit gutted now you have told me that about alfa not giving paints codes. i really hope you are wrong but my gut feeling is you are right.
matching up by sight will be impossible, tried this before was a nightmare.
maybe someone knows a paint code they have matched up by sight there self. iv got my fingers crossed!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: paint code for supersport alloy

I believe Honda Vogue Silver is a pretty good match for the teledials, I assume the colour is the same. Might be worth finding as close a match as you can and just do both wheels on that side.

Re: paint code for supersport alloy

I thought it was pretty much the same metallic silver as used on many other wheels such as Rover. Speak to a refurber, I'm sure they will have a similar finish. You could always just paint 2 of them.

Re: paint code for supersport alloy

Sorry to bear bad news!

I know you want to keep the cost down, but Chipsaway did my wheels for £75 each not so long ago. To my mind, saving yourself the bother of messing it up, it could be money well spent. Good luck

Toyota Lucerne Silver is a good match.

Wurth wheel silver is a rotten match!

Re: paint code for supersport alloy

drive the car to a local paint shop, there are are handfull of metallic silvers used for alloy wheels, I often use B009 ultra bright, poor coverage as its pretty much pure metallic particle, but its a great finish, I used b004 (i think) for the Jag which is pretty dull, a 6 or 7 may be nearer, but a paint shop will match.

Best to get poly base and 2-pack laquer - you can still get them in cans and if you sign a paper, still get them in tins to put through a gun.

I assume you weren't trying to do it with dodgy cans from halfrauds which jet washes off - or if it does stickm long enough, the laquer turns yellow
