    Question HRE Wheels touch-up paint for Tarmac color?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I was unable to find anyone that shared a way to touch up blemishes on the HRE Tarmac color. Unfortunately, I scraped a bit of the wheel color off on a jagged edge of a pothole today. Iím hoping someone has some guidance so Iím not resorting to trial and error color-matching. Thanks in advance.

    Of the various touch-up paints I tested, this was the one that matched the HRE tarmac powdercoat color the closest. The lack of thickness is noticeable because itís a single coat since I wanted to make sure the color was good before I layed on more coats to try to get closer to the pc thickness. I bought it from Quadratec that sells Jeep offroad parts. Itís their ARB 33270 Satin Black Touch Up Paint. Itís cheap. $10 bucks.

    My blemish is on the spoke in the center of the wheel photo.
