    20-inch Wheels Rock Chip. How do I ID correct touch-up paint?

    I was washing my CX-9 today and noticed a small chip in the edge of the wheel, very close to the tire bead. Looks like a small (high velocity) rock hit it. Has anyone tried to match the color of these wheels in a touch-up paint? Thanks.

    Thanks sm1ke. I'll give that a shot (great idea!). You put on your winter tires yet?

    Yep, I actually swapped them on when I did my last oil change. Good timing too, because snow came down a couple of days later. When I put the winters on, I noticed that I had some rock chips in the finish too, so I need to get some nail polish for these wheels as well, lol.
