    Closest Vaux colour to GSI Snowflakes?

    Morning all ( apologies if this isn't in the right section )

    After a colour code for the above wheels, I read up that there is no exact colour code for these wheels.

    But what is THE closes colour match? Closest I've found so far, is Star silver 3

    Wheels are bubbling in the inner lip of the rim and paint is flaking off, other than that they're shiney.

    There isn't one.

    The Star Silver colours are BODYWORK colours, not wheel colours.

    Also Wheel paint has a harder durability than bodywork paint.

    Aye I know that Star silver is a bodywork colour, I mix paint up for a living was wondering what was the closes. These may well have been done in the past, as paint is flaking off inside the rim quite a bit.
