Paint for wheels 9-3 2009
« on: 06 November 2011, 05:47:49 PM »
As the title really, can anyone advise the best paint match for alloy wheels from the above car?

The car has 17" Aero style wheels.

 Thanks

Not sure if your wheels are anything like mine for colour (9-3 Sportwagon 2006 with double evos) but someone on the UK Saabs forum recommended me Ford Stardust Silver when I did a sort of DIY temp refurb on some parts of the spare wheels I got for my winter tyres last year. It is a pretty good match, Halfords, with their clear laquer to follow.

I seem to remember hearing about this particular colour too - I think it was in the Pug306 forums in another life!

Cant beat a Lepsons refurb for about 40 a wheel though!
