Default Paint code for 09+ WRX wheels

I am trying to find some paint so that I can touch up my wheels. The wheels are stock 2010 WRX wheels, kind of an anthracite color. Anybody know of a color code for these?

Back in '09 I tried doing a search for the same info and could not find any. I ended up going to an automotive paint supply shop and had them match the paint for me.

If I remember correctly, the color was almost an identical match to a gray used by Mercedes Benz. I had a pint sized bottle made and it only cost me a couple of bucks.

I don't remember the paint code #, but I know exactly where the bottle is. I will let you know what it is when I get home from work.

If you'd like, PM me your email address and I'll send you a pic of the paint so you can see it for yourself.

I contacted Subaru Customer Service, but they didn't help much. I don't know why it would be so hard to get a paint color so that one could do minor touch-ups.

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

Subaru does not offer touch-up paint for the wheels on our vehicles. We also do not have paint codes for the wheels. The color of the wheels on your 2010 WRX Premium are Gray.

Thank you, Corrie, for the opportunity to be of service.

Sincerely,

I bet you were glad they were able to clarify that for you

I'd also be interested to know if there's either a code or something off the shelf that's a close match.....
