Toyota OEM Paint Code for steelies?

Bought a used 2007 this summer as a second car, and used the original steelies for snows. Looks like the original owner (or more likely the dealer,) used some harsh cleaner on the wheel covers/wheels. Looks like they used freaking acid! I am running them without covers, and where the spokes of the covers were open, the paint on the wheels is faded/gone. Surface rust is forming on the wheels in these eight "spoke" locations. Looking to match the original black paint, and wondered if anyone had the paint code so I could buy OEM rattlecan paint. Yes, the wheels were waxed by me, but I guess the wax won't stick to essentially bare metal! Thanks for any help!

ditto... unlike most colors, black is pretty much black in any brand. Only differences are gloss and metallics

Thanks!
I might have to try Duplicolor. Reason I was looking for exact is that I didn't want to spray the entire wheel, just the affected area. Damn Magnesium Chloride!

Actually a gloss paint might come out pretty nice. Duplicolor sells black wheel paint thats made specifically for the wheels. That way should last a bit longer than regular automotive paint. Google paint steel wheels. You can use either masking tape for the tires or just simple index cards. Either way would be easier and better looking to just repaint the entire thing.

You can even clear coat it for longer lasting results while your at it.

The stock steelies are actually a dark shade of grey, not black.
So, if you decide to paint them, paint the whole wheel.

If you are asking about my dirty wheel pic, they are the same caps I talked about in _your_ thread here:

I have two sets of snows, both with essentially the same center caps. I like that they cover the now-rusty axle ends in front!
