I'm guessing your doing a DIY job? You can get cans of paint to match paints from most Halfords stores with any paint code..

The reference of the paint colour is usually on the inside lip of the bootlid.

The factory colour is a rather uninspiring and flat grey/silver finish.

Most go for a different colour altogether when refurbing, or a nice bright silver.

Oh wait, I've misunderstood the question sorry. You mean the same colour as GTA wheels?

As far as I understand your question - you would like the slightly darker wheel colour than the standard 147... then look at Gunmetal grey or Anthracite. Both can come in darker or lighter shades - but generally a bit darker. The titanium grey colours might be the bit lighter range that you are looking for..

Anthracite wheels? - General Chat - R32OC | VW Golf R32, Golf R and other .:R Vehicle Owners Club.


EDIT: For reversible DIY: Get hold of Plastidip smoke spray cans: http://www.plastidip.fr/
It is a see through rubber spray that the more layers you put on your wheels, the darker grey they go. Then you can choose how dark grey you want to go:

If they are corroded at all you will be wasting your time unless you intend to do the job properly. Are there no alloy wheel specialists local to you that can do this? I paid £35 per wheel for primed and new top coat + lacquer for my winter wheels. Well worth the money since a DIY attempt would have taken too long to ensure they last.

thanks for yours posts.
In france, prices for this kind of job are crazy therefore i will do this job myself, as cleanly as possible.

Gertie give a good track. I would love find the same color as GTA wheels.
