Wheel Paint Color Code

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

What is the color code for the Standard Wheel Paint (Silver) for a MY03 Porsche 996 Carrera 2?

Is there a equivalent code from Duplicolor?

I need to get a little touch-up paint.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Paul

It's tough to get a good result diy. You'll find that the Wurth silver, although one of the closest matches, is a slightly darker tone than most porsche wheel finishes. Also when you apply metallic paints from a can the reflective particles in the paint never look quite right and the finish tends to be flat.

For small repairs in the past I've found using a thin mist coat of arctic silver over white primer finished with clear coat gives a better colour result. For a good paint finish try a few coats of clear coat lacquer, each rubbed down with fine grade wet sand paper (at least 800 grit) and then a final polish with 3M hand glaze.

Unless it is for a small repair or you like a challenge I would just have them professionally refurbished.

All the best :)
