    Pictures would help. Depending on the scratches you might just try a light sanding.

    Sanding, or even body filler will work cover the deep ones if you are painting them

    Thanks Scratches are not deep but will need light filling. Any ideas where you can buy a can of spray paint?

    If the covers are the same silver as a lot of BMW wheels Wurth Silver Wheel Paint will work.
