    Searched and came up empty. What are you guys doing for chips in our one-of-a-kind bronze whatever color wheels? I'm not the kind to stress over a few chips after all, they are wheels and it's going to happen. It would just be nice to have some touch up.

    cruizinrc is working on some brass monkey colored wheels for my remote control Hellcat. Don't know where he's at in the process or if it would help on the big cars. Maybe he will chime in. I'll have to check

    Thanks. I shot him a PM. You would think Chrysler would make touch up paint for such a unique color on a $1,600 wheel. I don't get it. The black ones were easy to touch up.

    They're down to around $750 now. If it helps. Too steep for me still. I got one with some curb rash that I don't know where it came from. Might have been there when I bought it. (Used). Didn't go over car very well it was pouring rain.

    Is that $750 new from Dodge? I've never seen them that cheap. I seem to remember one member getting quoted around $1200 from Steve White parts.

    Good thread. I'd like to get some BM touch-up paint as well? Or even find out what the paint code is for future wheel touch-ups.

    I wonder how close we could get a Brass Monkey color match if we went to a body shop that has a PPG Rapid Match Spectrophotometer system. I might look into this if the research hasn't already been done. Usually those systems can get super close to a match

    That's probably the only way to go right now

    They are down to $665. Even $632 if you have a forum discount from another site.

    The only way I would replace them is if I had massive curb rash or other significant damage.

    Right after I did all the research and bought the correct black touch up pen I traded for brass monkey. Go figure..

    Dent wizard is a national chain that fixes rim and they are are reasonable. Probably around 90-130 to fix. We had them fix a rim and it was flawless.
