Smile Alloy wheel refurbishment colour

Hi all, not been on here for a while sorry. I am looking to fix a few curb scuffs on my Mercedes Benz SLK 250 AMG alloys but I'm not sure what the colour is. I've looked on different threads and website that state the alloys are standard silver colour but I'm not too sure.

My car is in obsidian black with factory AMG silver wheels 5 spoke design. Google has returned so many answers I don't know what to believe.

Please see image below of what my car and alloys look like. Would really appreciate any help



Thanks in advance

Giuseppe

The color is fairly standard but that does not mean it's universal.
If an exact match is not used the repair will be significantly noticeable unless the whole wheel is done (and the you have to also do the other one on that side).
Also not those kits are quite difficult to work.

I’ve read online that the colour may be called Sterling Silver or Titanium Silver?

I've had a hunt and cannot find a code for alloy wheel paint.

If it were me I'd ask the dealer.
I'd also price up a pro repair.
If the difference is small, then let the pro do it.
If he gets it wrong you have come back.
If you get it wrong you have to start over.
