Anyone?? If you look behind the rim you can see the paint overspray. I'm assuming that maybe a body shop could match the color?!?

I'd like to get wider wheels for the back and still match the color if possible.

Thanks asking this. I would like to do the same thing. Get a set of Deep Dish wheels (most likely gray color) and get them painted to match the stock wheel. I have not checked but I feel sure a good body shop will be able to match but if I have the actual color it would make life easier.

I want to keep the orginal stock wheels in their orginal shape. (Good backup so when I scratch my front wheels. Not if but when. :confused: )

Check with the Body shop at a Ford dealer. They may have the code.
Dark Argent I think is the correct name but I've also seen Ford refer to it as I think, Charcoal grey metallic.

I think Ford uses 'Dark Argent' on other items like some Bumpers.

Great idea! I'm about due for my first service so I'll inquire and post what I find out.

Probably Superior Industries. They're the #1 OEM wheel supplier for the USDM (Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda).

They've got wheel-foundries all over the US, with two of them in this area......

Good find!

Who's gonna be the giniea pig!?
Well, it looks as if I am :tongue:

I have both of the Eastwood Argent paints. The Silver Argent and Charcoal Gray/Dark Argent paint. The Silver Argent Paint is not even close. The Charcoal Gray/Dark Argent is close. Perhaps a shade or two off.

Here is a photo of Eastwood's Charcoal Gray/Dark Argent paint against our Dark Argent wheel:

I just finished the Terry Honaker full size spare install. I painted a factory accessory wheel to match the other four.
Here are the paint reference codes (Dupont):


Thanks for the information.

Can you give me that code. I can't enlarge your pic.
