I have a nick on one wheel. Don’t know how it got there. Is the Modern Steel color about the same color as the Touring wheel? Thought maybe the touch up paint could be a reasonable temporary fix. Thoughts?

I also have a chip in one of my gray wheels. Didn't notice it at the dealer but sure did when I got home and washed it. Hopefully we'll get a reply if the Modern Steel Metallic touch up paint is a match.

Will pick up a touch up paint vial at the dealer next time I’m over there.

Unfortunately, the MSM is too dark for the wheel color. Going to try something else.

Not surprised. I will soon get a light gray and mix the 2 to get as close as possible

Correction: Polished Metal Metallic, touch up code 08703-NH737MAH-A1 seems to be a pretty good match. It’s a shade lighter than the Modern Steel Metallic of the body color. This pic is without the clear coat applied and 2 coats of color. The different shades in the pic is because of the different angles of the wheel.

So, you’re pleased with it? If so, I'll pick up a vial of that color.

Actually, no. It still needs to be lighter, but it’s better than the Passport Modern Steel Metallic which is darker than my Accord Polished Metal Metallic. Do some more digging... someone somewhere has to know what color Honda used.
Accord color (one I used) on left, Passport on right...

The Civic and Accord were produced in the 90s in Pewter Gray NH537M.
Wonder if it's the same color as the wheels?
I'm certain I'll be on the short list for curb rash also.

I have an email into Honda with that code... with any luck, hopefully will have an answer in a few days.

Sorry I can't provide anymore information about the color for the wheels. Here is the official response from American Honda... even they can't provide the color code! My guess is the aforementioned Pewter Gray NH537M is worth testing. For now, I'll settle with my Accord Polished Metal Metallic. Spent way too much time on this to get no answer from Honda.

I am also very interested in finding a good touch-up paint for our Touring Rims, perhaps an Auto Paint retailer or a Body Shop would have a way to figure it out OR match it..!
