    silver wheel and trim paint equivalent for 2010 1200rt

    Took a little spin after changing my oil today, and disaster struck. I ran over something that was kicked up and damaged the paint on the right side foot plate panel, the right side grab bar and the rear wheel on my once spotless RT. Whatever it was, it also punctured my nearly new rear tire. Not a good day!

    Anyway, are there any Rustoleum, Krylon, wheel paints, etc, touch up paints that are a close match the the silver that BMW uses?

    My other thought is to find a wheel repair guy, and have a pro do it.

    +1. I repainted my right rocker arm cover (parking lot drop, dammit!) with the Wurth wheel paint in a rattle can and after the clearcoat it looks pretty good. Perhaps just a bit more metallic than the left, but not noticable unless you're really looking for it.

    I've had very good luck using this paint on silver wheels, frame and engine cases.
    The wheels were K75 and K1200RS, the frame and crank cover was on a K1200RS
