I'm getting ready to paint and mount the Rallye wheels on my 70 bee. Which paint did you use for your rims and center caps? My rear rims are sprayed with MP argent but they appear too light and the finish is flat/dull. I remember Rallye wheels being a glossy, medium Argent silver. Am I right? The fronts I bought from Wheel Vintiques and they are powder coated and look real nice but there's no way I can match the rears by getting them powder coated locally. The center caps from WV are nice but totally Incorrect color. Muddy grey with no argent look. I want the 1970 light argent look.

Help a brother out.

Parts stores sell a"wheel paint" that looks pretty good/close for a driver,(maybe not for what you want).
Hate to admit, but I regularly use rustoleum aluminum with a rattle can clear.
Please don't hate me for this...

Mopar Performance Wheel Paint P4529876 from Summit racing. This is what I used and is correct. Looks great.

I mentioned the Dupli-color paint earlier (got axed for some reason). That wheel looks real nice. I didn't say earlier but I don't need accurate. Just close. That MP paint definitely looks good.

Krylon dull aluminum for the wheels. No clearcoat.

The powdercoat and/or epoxy paint color on aftermarket rallye wheels is too dark and shiny at the same time. I can spot those a mile away.

Sorry, I was referring to the center caps w/ that rough silverish finish. I have been to no less than 6 auto parts stores, hardware stores and Hobby Lobby looking for a paint to work on the center caps. I assume Amazon at this point but I want to make sure that I get the right color. I also can't find anywhere that sells the Krylon Fusion Textured Shimmer #2521 or 2522. I fear it may have been discontinued.

Here is the page right off of Krylon's site. They only make the nickle shimmer #2338 now. If you can find it on a Google search please enlighten me because every link that "says" they have it diverts you to a different color, not the 2521.

So I went and picked up a can of the Dupli-Color Textured Metallic "Silver" and did the center caps w/ it. These caps were pitted and really ugly. I taped the outer edge w/ duct tape and then sand blasted them. I got any of the chrome that was bubbling out to now be in and then I put a 5 minute coat of Bondo putty on them to fill the pits. I had to paint over the plated ring around the new center caps as the chrome was peeling, but this beats spending almost $200 on re-pops.

I was the OP on this old post. You got the deal done. That textured argent from duplicator has very nice metallic in it and it has a coarse finish. For anyone else digging up this post in the future, here is the code for the paint and some results. In addition, I will add that the paint I used for my rims was UPOL wheel paint. It goes on dull. I followed up with UPOL clear. It's lacquer based and flows like butter. I think they came out excellent.
