Wheel color code


Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I might find a color code for the wheels? Looking to replace a wheel on my 05 lgt LTD and can seem to find the exact color I need. I've seen silver, silver sparkle in both medium and bright. Can't find anything in the vacation pics or online

Find a local powdercoater and get them whatever color you like for $5-600. They’ll last much better than painted wheels too. In my past experiences at least they have

 

As for your initial question, I also had no idea there were different colors of silver for the wheels

Most body shop can paint the wheels too. My buddies shop painted two of my wheels a year ago after they got damaged. I had a number of wheels painted by shops over the years.

Those are great prices, even a 09 Spec B wheel was $199.

 

That site should be added to JmP's sticky up top.

Wipe down the original wheel with a rag with some Work's toilet bowl cleaner and then quickly rinse them with a solution of warm water and baking soda. I think you'll find that your original wheels have a slight bit of a tan tint due to brake dust and this will remove it and most likely make it match your new wheel.

 

Don't leave the Works on the wheel for more than a minute or so. It's highly corrosive and wear latex or nitrile gloves when wiping them down, so you don't hurt your hands.

Now we just need a cheaper place to buy new center caps.

 

FWIW, here's a junkyard wheel painted by the body shop.
