Color code for BMW Wheels

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows the color code for BMW wheels. I am planning on touching up a scratch with an airbrush. Thanks for the help.

I asked about this at my dealership and they told me that there is no official touch-up paint available.

FWIW the Titanium Silver is a pretty close match to the silver on the type 44's. Also, I heard somewhere that Wurth (sp?) wheel paint is a pretty good match also.

The silver on the wheels that the Wurth spray matches is called Polaris Silver.

Thanks for the replies... so is the color closer to Ti Silver or Polaris Silver? I don't want to use the Wurth paint because I want to use an airbrush to do the touchup. Anyone know the paint codes for Ti Silver and Polaris silver.

Great info here. I'm about to paint a pair of rear staggered wheels.

I have E39 Type 32 Staggered Wheels, and looking to closely match a set of new fronts that have the mirrorplate or whatever it is called.

Bought a pair of new fronts, and not sure that they actually have the mirrortone finish. To me it looks more like a regular silver paint.
