    Does anyone know of a source like VHT or the like. I checked the archives and saw PPG, Glasurit, etc. Someone refinished theirs with VHT or another over the counter brand of paint. Does anyone know of a paint that is close to the factory color? I am not interested in sending my wheels out to be refinished. Just looking for a close over the counter paint.

    Griots garage sells a silver paint and clear coat that work well if you are planning on doing all 4 wheels.

    I tried the Wurth silver metallic paint and then clear coat. Came out very nice. They say it is the original silver type color for MB's, Porsche etc..

    The Griot's paints are manufactured by Wurth...just "private label". I believe I found the Wurth silver to be a tad darker than the silver paint...but it was very close.

    The code for 328 wheels which I believe Ferrari uses the same color for all wheels is Glasurit Fer 101, I used another brand called RM Duramont and the color for it was 21428 Argento Metallic

    Actually, there appears to be several different shades of silver used throughout the years. 328 wheel silver appears much darker than earlier or later years. I intend to have my 328 wheels painted with the same shade of silver as the 355/360 wheels. I did this on my QV wheels and they looked great and stood out more.
