Have an old grungy set of Watanabes I want to clean up and make spiffy. My favorite "look" for these is the Type R style with a polished lip and painted center. Like this:

The color isn't really black, and isn't a good match for most "gunmetal" wheel paints, so...

Any thoughts on easy to obtain paints that mimic this (charcoal?) color?

I used to own an Acura TL. The color was "Anthracite Metallic" (color code NH643M) which looks similar to the color of those wheels. If you have an automotive paint shop near you they should be able to create the color using that code. They might even be able to put it in a spray can for you. Just a thought
