Default 2018 Wheel paint color?

So it happened...I curbed one of my wheels already. Anyone happen to know the paint code/color for these wheels or something that will match closely? I read that the regular Subaru Dark Grey Metallic (code 61k) is a pretty close match the 2015-2017 base wheels, which I believe are the same color as the 19's on the 2018. Can anyone confirm? This is really stressing me out lol Thanks!

Just get the DGM touch up paint and use that.....you'll never notice the difference unless you are really trying to find one.

I got a generic dgm touch up paint and clear coat and result is acceptable.

I have a 2012 sti with gun metal enkei wheels (very similar to your wheel colour if not exactly the same). It was a chore and a half when I was looking for colours to match. Then I just brought my wheel to the body shop where they had a colour spectrometer. They mixed up an exact match in a little bottle and I cannot see the scratch at all. Cost me nothing except the box of donuts I brought the shop to say thanks for the help.

I did the same thing just over a month ago. It drives me nuts every time I see it... what did you end up doing with your wheel? How did it turn out? Thanks!

Just touch it up with DGM....not too long after a wash, your wheels are colored "brake dust" anyways.....

Hi. Based on this thread, Im about to order some DGM paint for a small rash spot on my 19s. Just wondering , since this was posted, if anyone knows of a closer match or the concensus the DGM is good enough? Thanks!
