Default Touch up paint for '16 WRX wheels?

Anybody find a close match for gunmetal grey on these wheels that is available at a dealer?

If you can't find touch up, most autoparts stores have a touchup paint rack where you can check out various paint colors.

Another place to check is your local hobby stores for plastic model enamel paint. Unless you're tracking your car where you'll want to use high temp enamel, regular enamel paint will work just fine.

Well yes, I know that. I'm asking for a paint code that someone has used which is a good match.

Dealers don't carry wheel touch-up paint. I have used one from quiktouch.com on my 2018, and it was a very close match.

Yes I understand that. Regular touch-up paint is the same thing, just need to know what would be the best match. That place is in China and would take weeks even if they were in business but they are not right now.

I doubt you will find one that matches well. I say that because I recall searching a lot and this was the only one I could find. I think they ship from Taiwan and at least at the time it arrived a lot faster than I expected, a little over a week I think. Of course things are different in the current environment.

Ended up using some paint I already had stored in the basement. Matches close enough, especially from 5 feet away.
