Question Repainting Rally Rims

Does anyone know where I could get the correct Rally Rims paint in a spray can. I know it "Argent Silver", but I'm looking for a close match color where I could pick it up at my local auto parts supplier.

Thanks

Not gonna find it at a local parts store. Something close, maybe.

Try some of the resto parts houses, like Rick's or Ground Up.

Krylon Dull Aluminum is damn close, real damn close, and just a couple spray cans at $3 will do it.

Ricks sells OEM Rally wheel spray cans. Works well, looks good but is at least $20 per can

Thanks for the feed back. It looks like Krylon Dull Aluminum is my best and cheapest way to go.
Thanks Again.

Re: Repainting Rally Rims

...another that will vouche for the Krylon Dull Aluminum. Years ago I purchased cans of "Rally Rim Paint" from a parts supplier (no need to mention name), ...and on the bottom of the can (in the laser dotted label), ..."Dull Aluminum".
...I went an extra step and used CLEAR over the paint, ...they turned out great.

Re: Repainting Rally Rims

mred,
I actually used Krylon Silver for my Rallies just a couple of months ago. They used to be Black and I striped them, primed, painted, and cleared them over a couple of days. This is the results, first pic is a shot when they were black.

Re: Repainting Rally Rims

One more vote for Krylon dull aluminum. Used 2 cans for 4 wheels back in the dark ages of the 80's and they still look good. I still see the Krylon paints but haven't seen the dull alum. in years. Anybody know a retailer that carries that color? Where did you buy yours? I've got a 72 El Camino that will need the wheel painted.

Re: Repainting Rally Rims

BPOS..............Thanks for the heads up. The $3 cans are more fun tho... That 6$ can would probably be $15 with postage and handling. I'm sure that UPS sticks a haz mat fee on it.
Like retailer, I meant a store box like a Costco, Ace, etc. We only have Wallymart and Kmarts here and they dont carry that color.
