          If you buy a kit , it will have the clear coat. I understand Star Silver 2 is near the colour of the wheels.

                    i have one mark on my rim but it was there when i got it.

                    im actually waiting for a good smash of a curb (not too hard) so i can get them re-coated a new colour.

                      Only with a pix can we comment if you need to get someone in to fix.

                      But all they use is a very small sandind disc to remove the graze.. then prime and spray. The tyre is let down so it can be masked.
