black rim paint?

noticed a small chip on my 2015 altitude 20inch black rims. Does anybody know of any touch up paint that could match the color of these rims? I've read somewhere about using glossy black paint would match but was wondering if someone can link me to something they have used before that matches and works well. thanks

black rim paint?

Those wheels are gloss black which is also called Black Clear Coat, paint code PX8. There is actual clear coat applied on top of the PX8 that you can apply on top of the gloss black after it dries. I use the clear coat on top of the paint. Have some paint thinner available and a fine artist brush. An auto repair specialist told me to get the best results take a small amount of paint and mix with a small amount of paint thinner, otherwise the paint would go on too thick. After that is done and dry, take a small amount of clear coat mixed with a little paint thinner and finish the repair. I was able to repair a chip in the hood of my last Jeep using this method.

Thanks for the info, I bought this off of amazon so I guess this should work too?

I would think so. Gloss black is only one color, not a mix, so that should be the same exact color
