My 2012 F-Sport CT200h has been a blast to drive on the winding roads of West Marin County in Northern California. Unfortunately, the front and rear passenger side F-Sport Dark Graphite wheels have both sustained some curb rash :eek: as the family gets used to judging parking distance from the curb. I've done plenty of Bondo/respray/clearcoat wheel repairs on alloy wheels, but need to find out what the best match for the Dark Graphite paint on the F-Sport wheel is. Has anyone had success finding a matching spray wheel paint for this car? Eastwood and a couple of other places carry a dark grey or graphite wheel paint. I'd like opinions about the best match. Thanks much in advance for your help and Merry Christmas!

I need to find the correct paint to fix curb rash on my 17" Dark Graphite F Sport wheels as well. Anyone out there having luck finding out what is best to use? I went to the Lexus dealer and talked to the service manager. He told me no one has asked about a paint match for the F Sport wheels for the CT200h yet. His technical materials didn't cover it.

I'm still having no luck tracking down the correct wheel paint for the stock 17" Dark Graphite wheels on my 2012 CT200h F Sport. I have to imagine that by now lots of owners have curbed their alloys and need to fix the rash. Anyone at all have luck getting the proper paint or at least a paint code from Lexus for this? Anybody?

I'm still out of luck finding the correct wheel paint for the Dark Graphite 17" alloys on my F Sport CT200h. Has anybody found a source for matching paint for these wheels? I have no problem fixing the damage, I simply can't start the work until I know I have the right paint in hand. Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist. I have already gone to the dealer's parts and service departments several times asking to see if the regional rep can get a factory match paint code, but so far, nothing :(.

Tried again to get the regional Lexus parts rep to help me out. This time I was told that there isn't a paint code for the F Sport wheels on the CT200h! That must be interesting at the wheel factory...:D.

I forgot to add that I was told to go to a wholesale auto paint supplier and see if they can match it for me. :(
