wheel paint color

Can anyone recommend a paint brand/color to touch up the stock alloys on my D90? Tried a couple of searches, but no luck. Thanks.

Hi chaps, just picked up my wheels today & I'm well pleased with the result.

The paint colour is "bright silver". it is a standard alloy wheel colour used by most manufactures and has a metallic particle in the paint as does the standard LR finish, this paint is different from standard auto paint as it has to be baked on at 150'C to harden it. spent a while chatting to the wheel tech every day a school day! pics below.

Regards

Gren
