    Tesla's OEM Turbine wheels are notorious for picking up the occasional rock chips and/or curb rash. What I'd like to know, is there a DIY solution If you want to touch them up and keep that like new appearance?

    Back in the day, when I had my M Benz detailed and they freshen up the stock wheels with a can of Krylon Semi gloss Silver spray paint and they came out looking like New! Has anyone done their Turbine's and if so, what color paint did you use?

    Inquiring minds want to know,

    I got some touch up paint from ebay and it seems to do the trick.

    Thanks, that's good to know. I wonder if Krylon semi gloss silver would also work color wise to do a whole wheel?
