I wanted to paint my wheels to match the satin finish on the SSR GT3s, anyone have any idea where I can find the color code? My wheel guy told me its damn near impossible to match it looking at the pics I've sent him. BTW the wheels are Dronell Type 5s

I see.... well if you knew the 3-step painting process, you could reproduce the same finish right? What do you usually do if you bought a set and got them chipped somehow.... how are you going to refinish it?

Its not a matter of layering one color on another. You're talking about metallic flaking, and sophisticated paint processes that cannot be duplicated outside of SSR. Best bet would be to have a local body shop try to color match and blend as best they can. It won't be perfect, but would look better than a scrape...
