Rim Paint?

Have a 2013 35i M package (19") and would like to fix a couple chips. Called the dealership and they didn't have anything. What can I use to fix them up a bit?

I found some silver wheel paint from one of the after-market suppliers. The color matched perfectly but, once again, I proved my ineptitude in fixing chips. The results were not great and, in a move of desperation, I tried some light sanding with disastrous results. It was so bad that I had 2 wheels repainted at a body shop. They sent them out to a shop specializing in wheel refinishing. As I recall, it was about $175 per wheel. The results are great and they seem to be holding up well.

Try Bavarian Autosport. They not only have the paint but also some really cool putty in case you need to repair some curbing
