Nothing really matches as they are a tri-coat. I have some paint that works and but will have to run out and grab from the car. It's from Dupli color. Close enough. or go

3 stage paint. Different colors/paints to give it a deep look with added flake and such. Same as Trofeo white or tri-coat rosso. Primer, Base coat, mid coat, clear coat.

Does anyone sell touch-up paint for rims like they do with cars?

I bought this paint along with clear coat from automotivetouchup.com. It is a very good match for the dark five-hole wheels (at least for hiding a little curb rash). I put on 3 coats.

Item No.: 2BTL-BC
Description: 2 oz Touchup Bottle, 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia: Graphite Gray Metallic 035
Quantity: 1
Item Price: $14.95
Item Total: $14.95

Thanks.

I was hoping for something actually for my VW Tiguan and not my Giulia.
