Hi all,

I see this has been asked before, but I can't find a decent answer.

Has anyone cracked a paint code for the VE Thunder grey wheel paint?

Or anyone been able to find someone that can supply a good color matched spray paint?

Thanks,

Darren

Better to get your wheels powder coated,will last longer and wont chip and scratch like paint does.

Sorry this is not helpful but from previous posts here I understand that Holden will not release the paint code for the Thunder wheels colour and it is not available from other sources.

I don't know if you are wanting to repaint an entire wheel or just do a touch up but decent wheel painters/refinishers and reputable body shops would be able to run a mix to match the colour very closely.

I asked my painter the same question to get other rims done in that colour and Holden will release a pot of mixed paint after a painter advises them what they are painting and know the qty required.

Also supercheap autos now have this colour in their paint mixing catalogue. Just need the staff to search for holden between 08-13 and it should be at the top of the list.
