Default Lattice alloys colour

Does anyone know the correct shade of silver used on the lattice alloys? Or have a paint code by any chance? Thanks again for any assistance.

Hi,
Had a look in my parts catalogue last night as it has lots of lists of colours and interior / exterior trim but nothing on wheels unfortunately. My spare is I think unused and this seems to indicate a slightly greyer tone than the silvery paint on the rest of the wheels which presumably have been treated in the past.

Would be interested if you track the colour down as my wheels will need treatment / spraying in the not to distant future.

Cheers,
LeeP

FWIW, I've never seen the paint codes for wheels published anywhere.

Cheers

Could it be that the wheels were merely clear coated natural finish aluminum?

The diamond turned versions certainly were, but I dont think the lattice wheels were diamond turned.

I think there were 6different Lattice colours in 15"

- Silver
- Silver with machine polished lip
- Chrome
- Black with machined face
- Anthracite with machined face
- gold *puke*

Mine are kind of a mix of silver with polished lip and anthracite sides of the 'X' sections... The colour is the same as for the Dimple rims painted. I think you'll find the Dimple rim colour in the X300 section.
