Re: Wheel Paint
Just go for a standard silver basecoat with more heavy grounded mica/alu flakes. The size of the flakes is rated in a scale from 1 to 10 I think.
Go to a car paint dealer and he will show you samples to see the difference. With bigger flakes the apperance will match the original paintwork very well, more sparkling effect. As for the colour matching std. silver will do fine.
I have repainted two rims on my friends GT using that paint with very good matching result. In that case it was Sikkens paint but I believe every car paint manufacturer can offer the same product.
Cheers and good luck.
