Original alloy rim color/repair issue

Post by luka » Fri May 22, 2020 4:31 pm

Hi,

I couldn't miss pavement so i made little scratch on alloy rim. Do you know what color is this (it is black, but what code or type) does anyone know? Thank you

Luka, you have really knocked my theory to nothing today 😫 we had on our new QQ the WIND wheels changed with Dunlop Tyres to Wheels with Michelin Tyres because they had an overlap over the Alloy Wheel Rim which we thought was more protection - Wrong it seems ! - Dave 🙂
I personally have never seen a Black Color Code for the Nissan Wheels but the QQ Black Color is normally Z11 Black Metallic.

Just looking at the damage it does not look like a Diamond Cut Repair Job with an NC Machine will do the job as this removes metal by skimming the whole area not just local areas and is expensive. If you try a DIY repair then good luck, it might work with some fine file work. It might be well worth asking a Wheel Repair Specialist for an opinion. At the weekend I saw a TV Programm with a test of a couple of quick Alloy Wheel Repair Kits, I was not impressed but they might give you some ideas :

The damage is so minor, I'd just use any black with lacquer coat and I bet you wouldn't see it unless you went looking!

Like @DaveBerlin says, I'm surprised that damage has occurred with those tyres, as they offer pretty good rim protection.

Actually I can't remember when I done this? Definitely it wasn't some hard impact, I would remember that. I notice this when I was checking the pressure. Maybe it is the best, first to clean it and repair little bit with sandpaper and cover it with any black and lacquer.

Luka, get it done ASAP before the dreaded “White Worm” Sets in. You could most probably clean this up with some Fine Swiss Files (small / thin) and then use different grades of “Wet & Dry” Sand Paper before treatment paint / lacquer - Good Luck Dave 🤨
