    So I got my pro rims in today and they are in good shape overall, but I noticed one little chip in the black paint with a small gash in it. What can I use to touch this up and make it less noticeable so it doesnt bug the hell out of me?

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Matte black might not work for the pro wheels as they are a little glossy.
    That auto paint you posted Matt might be best if you can find a gloss or semi gloss.
    I would suggest appliance touch-up paint. What is used on some chips on my grillcraft grill. Available at home depot. It is a little thicker and you can build it up a little bit to fill the chip for cleaner look.
