Default After a bath and wheel detail

Stopped in a park to take a few pictures after a good bath. Cleaned the wheels with iron X and touched up a few nicks.

Old thread I know but I'm curious what touch up paint did you used to fix your wheels.

In person and up close the style 73's (which are now just my winter wheels) show some nasty curb rash and chips. Nowhere near being "fixed". The photos aren't the best quality either which kind of masks the flaws. I hate to admit it, but I had a can of silver spray paint laying around. I sprayed a bit into a plastic cup and dabbed it on the spots with a tiny brush. It doesn't really match well at all. But what it does do is take your eyes focus away from the dark looking chipped places. Did the curb rash too and in the center area around the lug bolt wells. All in all a fairly ghetto attempt on my part, but driving by a 55 mph, nobody is the wiser. LOL.
