bavauto.com sells the silver spray can for rims. I saw it on site the other day and was wondering how good it was.

+1 above, but you may also have to use #600 grit in order to smooth out the surface following #400. It really depends on your skill and what you are fixing. I always recommend 3M wet/dry paper (I supply them) and prefer to use a brazing stick v bondo...that way you can still powder coat the wheels in the future. Wurth is a decent match but I also found DuPlicolor also has options between silver and hyper silver. GL.
