    So the inevitable has happened. I curbed my wheel today. I'm planning to just do some sanding and use touch up paint. It won't be perfect but I've got no repair services for rims near me.

    Anyone know what the colour is? T Sportline has a silver that they says matches Tesla silver wheels but are they all the same? Never compared mine to an S or X.

    19" Sport Wheels are the same color as Model S or X factory silver wheels.

    I guess not, T Sportline emailed me back to say it wouldn't match. I talked to teslasuper.store and they said their OEM sonic silver matches. So I've ordered from there. I'll update this thread so anyone in the same boat can find this down the road.

    Did you end up receiving this and confirming it matches? I wanted to pick it up also if so.

    Sonic Silver isn't a match. It's close but it's more metallic then the wheel and a tad darker. They're sending me another colour to try, I'll update when I've tried it!

    Sorry I never followed up.

    Tried 2 different colours from TeslaSuper.store and neither matched, the rash looked better lol. Any wheel place within 100 miles wanted me to leave the wheel with them so I didn't bother. Tesla ended up giving me a new rim under good will! So I've got my curbed one as a spare.

    I'm on the hunt for the 19" Sport Wheels touch up paint as well. I just joined the curb rash club.

    Got my color match touch up bottle directly from Tesla. Took them a couple days for it to come in and just picked it up at the service center near me.

    Hand sanded down the rim and touched it up with the little brush. Pretty good result.
