    I've picked up several chips in my forged silver wheels over the years. Is there an easy way to fix this? Any product recommendations?

    A very simple way I've used in the past was to touch them up with model paint. The small tins of Humbrol left over from my plastic model building days. Not perfect, but standing beside the car you couldn't see the touch-up. This was on a Ferrari wheel, so was probably the cheapest fix ever on a Ferrari.

    You might also want to lose those locking wheel bolts while you can still get them off... See Looking for "D" wheel key Save them and the key for resale, but not really needed for security these days. Just sayin...
