Paint code for standard alloys

Is there one? Or something near?

The wheels are the standard 17 inch 5 spoke alloys on a 2002 147 Selespeed. Going to get the paint made up by Halfords

Cant help with a paint code, call in at your nearest car body paint shop and they will get a match for you.

Re: Paint code for standard alloys

Most decent paint suppliers will stock a standard alloy wheel paint. I'm pretty sure that the paint is a slightly different compound to regular body paint, (although I may be wrong), pretty sure it's thicker hence harder when dry to cope with debris/stonechips better.

I'm surprised Halfwits don't have a ready made alloy paint.

Re: Paint code for standard alloys

i recently refurbed mine, i wasn't happy with the grittyness of the standard metallic in the wheels so mixed up some fiat grigio steel with standard wheel alloy silver to get a nice colour i liked.
