Go to NAPA, have them make rattle can of your spec paint code for $20. Most Crappy tires mostly have domestic brand duplicolor paints + the odd import. How many World Rally Blue Z-71's Extended cabs are there in Edmonton lol!?
When I painted my jdm Sti scoop, NAPA was the route I went.
FYI = Silver is one of the most difficult to match. Even if you can find one @ Can Tire that is close in shade, think twice about it. Each additional layer of paint you slap on will only make the "outcome" darker.
When I did my scoop, I did a wet sand followed by an adhesion promoter (primer) followed by a high grit wet sand. Followed by 3 very light coats of my NAPA subie spec paint. I beleive it was an enamel blend; so there was no need to add a protecive clear coat.
Just my O2
What are you painting, and Where ?
