Smile Wheel color code?

I want to spruce up some curb rash on my 17" straight spoke '02 wheels. They are silver and I am wondering if all Porsche wheels are painted the same standard silver or are they different and all require a specific color code in order to obtain the correct metallic paint?

BTW just recieved my new center caps today and they are better than I expected. Nice raised painted shield on silver center cap. Will post pics when I get a warm enough day to install them. They are the ones offered on ebay for $68.00 plus shipping. I am quite pleased.

Thanks a lot, I thought it might be something simple like that. Now I have to track down some Wurth Silver but since it has turned cold I will have to wait a bit to work on the wheels.

Thanks Travis, you anticipated my next post as to where to find the step-by-step procedure as shown in the article. Now to wait for some warm weather, like May?
