Miro Hypersilver Touch-up Paint

Does anyone know where I can get the paint? I need to repair some curb rashes. I've already called Miro and **********s, they both don't know (how the hell does Miro themselves not know?..retarded)

i got touch up paint for my stock rims on my dodge magnum from http://www.touchuppaintonline.com. maybe you can email them and see if they have it, but since it's not stock, i am not sure if they have any way of matching it. you can probably check pep boys and try to match it.

thinking about doing that...Miro's customer service is horrendous/nonexistent. Not buying their products again for sure.

Unfortunately, Miro along with other wheel manufacturers like VMR don't have the paint codes handy. The actual factories have the control of what finish is applied and it actually changes slightly on occasion. The only people that I know of that have consistent paint codes are dealerships, body shops and the custom wheel companies who get powdercoating and painting done locally. I don't know of any cast wheel company (that we carry at least) who has touch up paint or their paint codes for that matter.

VMR does offer touch up paint, for Matte black, Hyper Silver, and Gunmetal.

Well at the time we asked for it, touch up paint was still "in the works."

there is no true touch up paint for hyper silver since it is a muti layer color layed over gloss black.

I just had my Hyper Silver Miro 366 rims put on this morning and the installer scratched some paint off by the center cap and hit the curb when pulling it out of the shop. Not happy about either but he is getting the curb rashed fixed this week. He said for the scratch mercedes grey and silver matches the hyper silver of these rims perfectly. I'm going to pick it up this week, I'll let you know how I make out.
