I posed a similar question recently, being happy to go with a good after market paint. Someone said Autoglym Wheel Silver is the correct shade but before I knew that I had just refinished my spare wheel with VHT brand wheel silver, put it alongside the road wheels and it was a near perfect match. I've now done all the wheels with it followed by VHT clear coat and IMO they look great.

I don't know the name, but I have read that Simoniz Wheel Silver is pretty close to the color of all XJ-40 wheels like the Teardrop and Pepperpot. However I have not tried it so I cannot say.

I stay away from Duplicolor paints, they never match anything.

What sold me on VHT over other generics (apart from the colour shade) is that it is formulated for wheels i.e. to withstand high temps and chip resistant. I also find Duplicolor is generally pretty poor quality.
