Default hit curb with rims

While backing up I slightly scraped the rim on my brand new Accord Sport. Does anyone know how I can repaint this myself? How can I find out the rim paint color for the Sport?

I wanted this article on how to do it myself.

im wondering about the same thing. kinda scratched one of my 17in alloy rims. got a quote from a local rim restoration shop for $180 to fix it... seems like a rip off to me.

Not sure if you can match anything from a rattle can or not.......a little searching.

If not, you could go to a auto paint store and have them mix up a few oz's of color. Some paint stores can custom mix a color and put it into a rattle can. If they can't do that, there are small prayers you can buy that will spary the color - google "Preval sprayer" and you will see what I'm talking about. Again the paint store would/should carry this as well. The clear shouldn't be a problem to find almost anywhere.

Most of the 2013 Accords have machined finished alloy wheels with a clear coat. From your picture, it looks like it is the machined finish with grey inset alloy wheel.

Some shops can do machined aluminum wheel repairs by surface refinishing.

if you call Honda Customer Service they might be able to help you. 1-800-999-1009 is the number. Give them the VIN number and see what happens.

The machined finish aluminum alloy on the 9th generation (2013) is not the same as painted finish aluminum alloy wheels (e.g., previous generation Accords).

Is it possible the Dupli Color to use is bright silver. Looking at other rim posts online other who have machined colored rims like mine are referring to this color.
