Default Titanium Silver Wheels?

Hey guys, has anyone repainted their OEM ZCP's or BBS CH oem BMW Titanium Silver? Did it match the original finish at all?

I bought my ZCPs used and they had curb rash repair using titanium silver. From a distance you can't tell. But up close the original finish is more liquid metal looking while the titanium silver has visible yet fine flakes.

Interesting, I might have to find a different paint then

This has been my experience with titanium silver rim finishes.

Yep, I have Avant Garde wheels and had to refinish a small section. I purchased the Duplicolor spray paint with the paint and the clear coat. Its specially made for titanium wheels and it just does not match.

I might look more into this!, I've read some where that it doesn't really match though.

True!

I've done some research and I've read that Audi 1H7 is a perfect match as said from a connection at BBS. Apparently it's what Audi used on their oem Bbs ch. I'm gonna try to find a place that mixes automotive paint and will update.

i recall reading in Bimmer Mag that BMW uses Polaris Silver for the silver wheel paint. might want to check that out.

also when it comes to using the Wurth wheel paint you have to shake the can extensively to get the correct blend so the flake matches best. people make that mistake often.

Please keep us updated! I also came across the Audi L1H7 paint, but haven't had the chance to respray my wheels yet. Here's how they look on CHs.
