    What paint to refinish these wheel covers?



    From a 2009 Impala. GM doesn't make spray cans of this color and the hardware store cans are too silvery. Are any of the "wheel cover" specific paints a good match? I'll do all 4 so the match doesn't have to be perfect.

    If these are metal, look at your auto parts store for products by:
    VHT
    Duplicolor

    They have special wheel paint and clear.
    It is best to match the paint and the clear from the same brand.

    Like all painting.......... Preparation is the most important thing.

    Take a look at the two metal colors and the clear of MultiMax by SEM.
