Wheel paint code

A buddy of mine wants his wheel arches sprayed the same silver as the stock freestyle wheels. Does anyone know that paint code? We have searched with no luck, and there isn't a big enough spot for them to take a picture.

First off it's a yellow 90 so it won't look as stupid as that one... I really don't care what you think, I am doing it for him bc he asked me to. So unless you have a paint code piss off.

No he won't. It looks cool on Broncos.

Come on Jeff you should have asked color before running your mouth. Yellow and silver flares is the epitome of taste.

I'm with Brian. Plus, just look at all the Defenders with Galvy Chassis and rock sliders out there, let alone galvy trim. The hue isn't exactly the same as wheel color but nobody disapproves. Did the link and info I posted earlier match your research?

The truck isn't yellow, I am just tired of people posting opinions instead of addressing the question that was asked. Chris thank you, Just got an email saying that they where able to get the paint code!

Make sure to post pics when done. Will save the next guy from even thinking about this horrible combo.

There are 2 diferent colors. The T on the end of the part number is for the touch up pen. A on the end is for aerosol, but I haven't seen the wheel paint available in aerosol.


Quicksilver STC7552T
Silver Sparkle STC8927VT

-Jeff
Jeff: FWIW it must be my turn to have a hissy fit. I posted a link to those part numbers (which Brian doesn't need) and the paint code (which he does) earlier in the thread.
