Default Alloy Paint

Hello buddies,
I heard from someone that there is something called Alloy Paint/Aluminium Paint which can be used on Alloys which has developed scratches/marks on it. Its mainly for Alloys which have aluminium finish and not for the Nickel finish. Are any of you aware of such Alloy treatments ?

My car is now 6 years old and its Alloys have got some bad scratches on them, I am wondering if any such paints like these can help doing them up.

Depends purely on the existing finish of the alloy. If it's machine finish, forget about it. Normal paint finishes can be redone.

Search around on the forum, a thread on this already exists.

well i'd say paint your alloys to white or black this will give your alloys a new look and sporty too. and yes if its mahcined finished then its not possible.
i got my machine finished allys scratched and got them painted to MATT black.
