Mk2 Steel wheel paint code

Post by Roccoman » Wed Jan 12, 2022 9:24 pm

Hi guys,
I'm needing to spray my steel wheels for this coming summer, thought about getting them done at a local paint shop but have decided to spray wheels/caps/trims myself all in the same shade.
The paint shop says they will only do the wheels and not the trims/caps.
Does anyone know the paint code/colour or name so I can buy the paint myself?
Any help much appreciated :-D

Wheelwright of Gosberton did my Mk2 8 spoke OEM's. The only colour in their pallet that was appropriate was Audi Silver. No code or number but took a chance and they came out great I think you'll agree...

Audi vs VW, same company in essence... why not I thought.

Give them a shout and they may be able to give you more info on the colour...

I used this stuff on my wheels, look similar to factory colour.
Use a good quality clear lacquer to protect the finish.
