    Color match solution for wheels

    I recently received some bronze wheels. Long story short, one of them has a small chip on it thatís just barely noticeable and I canít get it replaced due to wheel company not getting stock for at least 3 months. I called around for prices on repair and itís just ridiculously priced, so I was going to try and get a paint code to just get a little touch up paint for the nick. Contacted wheel company and thereís no paint code because itís custom paint from them. Are there any kind of shops or stores that can color match to get the closest color for me other than a wheel shop? RenderedImage.jpg

    IDEAS :
    *If it's just barely noticeable, don't worry about it.
    *Keep the wheels and see if if you can get a partial refund.
    *Find some nail polish or touch up paint from a large automotive store. Even if it's close, but not an exact match, you can probably get away with it.

    Do you have a pic of the blemish?

    Another solution: take it to the trail and really get them scuffed up!

    Only the first one hurts. After that itís just another scratch. Silver lining is you got the first one out of the way already.

    Go to Hobby Lobby or a hobby store and check out the model aircraft paint for that color.
