Model 3, 20" wheels, minor alloy scuff mark. Does anyone have details on either:

i. a product to touch up the wheels that is available in the UK, or
ii. the official Tesla colour name of the wheels?

Did this with the rear passenger side wheel twice already, I must have taken the corners too quickly, no point getting repaired as it could happen again next week

Getting it professionally fixed will cost you about £50. Google “alloy wheel repairs” for your local area.

After having this one fixed I suggest you take out alloy wheel insurance. Mine cost £129 for three years cover, multiple claims up to £1000.
 
That's true, but it still hurts..
It is my biggest worry at the moment while driving the car, 100% attention to pot holes and kerbs. Not really anxious about range or anything else - which tells a good picture I think about the car overall.
I wouldn't change the 20" to smaller wheels either, they just look too good! and they're surprisingly comfortable.
With all my care and good intentions, I have managed to scratch most of my previous car alloys. Over time the guard is coming down and it inevitably happens. The only question is, how much time! :)
