Just kerbed my wheel on the way home tonight... Any recommendations on what paint/laquer to use to touch up?

Sorry just realised you have a 220. My wheels are the 5 spoke 200 ones. :tomato:

Lexus have a bit of a reputation for corrosion appearing on the wheels. Have some on mine already at 8 months old. I'm going to get this changed at service time, so I'm not stressing about any minor kerb damage.....new set of alloys every year for the first three years.

Nice idea - a great excuse to fit 18" Hoshis.... In the meantime I want to keep my 17inchers looking good. Do Lexus do an official touch up kit with the right colour paint perhaps?

I am not sure about whether they have any suitable products in the market - when I was in a similar situation, Lexus quoted me £70.00 for refurbishment. If there was something they could have done without that charge, I am sure they would have suggested that. But I may be wrong - someone here would have done something differently.

Just put clear laquer on immediately to prevent corrosion and further wear.
