666m Shadow Wheel Touchup Advice Needed

I bought a used set of 666m shadow line wheels. A couple of the wheels have minor scuff marks, and the dark lacquer/coating by the center cap of one of the wheels is slightly peeling. Anyone have experience touching up these wheels? Iím looking for a recommendation for a paint or dark/smoked lacquer that can blend in with the wheels fairly well. The issues are minor, so Iím not looking to refinish any of the wheels. Thanks.

I've done my 666M with dark finish to my wheel repair shop.
I had 2 rims with slight curb damage.

So i opted to do all 4 rims, they repair damage, CNC machine them, and then apply dark clearcoat (powdercoated)

They say they will just be like OEM finish.

Will cost me about 550-600 USD to do all of them.

Thanks for the feedback. If I had significant damage, I think Iíd spend the money to refinish all of them. At this point, Iím looking for recommendations on a dark clear coat that will get the job done.

I would say, just make sure you find someone that really knows what they are doing. I had to get one of mine touched up after a slight curbage and had to have him fix it twice. It's still not as good as I had hoped, but these wheels are a pain to fix.
