    Default Wheel colour codes

    I am sure I have seen this discussed before but could not find the thread.

    I am looking for the colour code for the wheel colour listed as Washi Gray Metallic or Gray Metallic . NSXSHOP lists 3 OEM colours for NA2 R wheels, obviously Championship White, Gray Metallic and bizarrely BMW Silver.

    This link shows the colours:

    Ebay lists the centre caps:

    I was trying to find a specific code but the upshot is that there is no colour code - BBS has not released one.
    I have the centre caps and am just going to get the paint matched to the caps.

    BMW Silver: https://www.oemacuraparts.com/v-2002...chassis--wheel

    You might find the other codes in Japan.

    The OP is looking for the 'Washi Gray' colour code, on the parts systems it does not have a code, just "Gray Metallic".

    There is also a Platina White Pearl too, never seen that colour wheel...

    If you have a center cap with that color a good painter should be able to match it. Sometimes they have color samples where you choose the nearest one and correct if needed.

    NH-537M has been mentioned a few times over the years, but I cannot confirm that this is correct.

    That "platina" white colour is the same colour as the last 12 Platinum White Pearl car NS55 NSX that has been owned by a couple of members and is for sale on Pistonheads right now.

    That does look like the correct colour but I'm pretty sure it was much darker 'in person' than the caps I have. The caps I have are: 44732-SL0-930.

    Stop saying that, my OCD does not agree.

    Thanks everyone who answered, I will order the caps and try and use that to match from.

    One last hint: if they can't match it exactly it's looks less distorted if the rims are a tad darker than cap than the other way round.
