    Best solution without paying too much to fix my alloys

    Unfortunatly I have scratch my alloys wheels against a wall and leaving couple of black marks on the wheel while I was driving on a very tight roads that leads to my backyard

    My alloys are silver just looking at halfords for a silver colour spray for a DIY job

    Is this going to work or you guys have any suggestion for me ?

    Thank you

    i work as a car valeter and we use bmw titan silver for standard silver wheels so it might be a good colour to use on your wheels doesnt have to be a main dealer either as halfords will be able to supply you with the same colour in a spray can as its a run of the mill colour used alot on bmw's dont know how much help this has been but hope it points you in the right direction

    akota silver is blue so stay clear of that but aluminium silver is ok to use , but i would spray it on as sliver is a bad colour to touch in it never looks the same colour

    Dude..is all this necessary? If you try all this spray it yourself stuff it will be probably look shabby anyways...Have you thought about just leaving it as you will probably encounter more bumps on your travels and kerbs and when you feel like the time has come, get them refurbed for about 40-60. Just my 2p.
