    I need to run a set of rallyes that have more surface rust spots than I care to see.
    I'd like to do a quick blast and paint before I put them on.
    Is there a locally available (Lowes, Autozone, Napa, etc) paint in a can that is close "enough" to the correct color of Argent?
    I really don't want to pay $20 per can plus shipping and wait for delivery.
    Thanks.

    Plasti-Kote Wheel Paint is available through local auto parts or auto paint supply stores. If I remember correctly, Argent is product #120. I used their Steel #118 for a slightly darker shade on a set of wheels. Cost was about 6 bucks per spray can. Each can does 2 wheels.

    Good info to have.

    I picked up 2 different shades of Valspar silver at Lowes.

    I think I like the darker better, but the lighter isn't bad.
    I've got one wheel done with the light shade.

    I think it will do, but I'll see if the PlastiKote is easy to get.

    Thanks
