    Peeler rim color?

    Hi,

    Is the OEM color for S4 Peelers a flat silver? I have a set that are a bit of a gray color with sparkles in the paint. I'm guessing my set has been repainted?

    My guess is those have been repainted as well, my peelers do not look like that color wise with the sparkle

    The oem color is gloss without visible metallic chips. The problem is that no commercially available spray can paint matches it. Not sure anyone is certain what is the actual color code of the paint. My guess is that the wheels were all painted so they would match.

    stock color is painted non-metallic silver and clear coated for gloss. That looks like a repaint/powdercoat job.

    I had my whole set redone recently so they'd match. I requested hyper silver. They look the same as OEM to me. There's no flake. It's just a high gloss silver.

    Yes they do "look the same" but if you compare it to an OEM peeler, it could be slightly different

    I have both in my garage. I havenít examined with a microscope, but I could take a side by side picture later if anyone cares.
