Hi all,

I have a two questions regarding my 2019 GMC Terrain SLT.

First, I am trying to find the exact touch-up paint for some scratches. I believe it's graphite grey metallic, but I want to be 100% sure before buying anything. I searched online and it looks like there should be a color code sticker somewhere in the car, but I can't find anything. Is there a website where I can search its VIN? Or should I just go to a local dealership?

Also, there are some serious scratches and nicks on two of my wheel rims. Anyone have any recommendations to touch those up as well? The structure of the rims aren't damaged, just some deep scratches and nicks.

Thanks everyone!

See the parts dept. of your dealer. Dealer can lookup the code from your VIN If you knew how to access paint codes, you could order genuine GM touchup paint on Amazon. If you search online you can find out how to find the color codes.

Scan the Q code in the door jamb. It will bring up the RPO codes which is the vehicles DNA. Paint codes are listed as BC/CC which is base coat/clear coat. Number shown is the base coat color.

Major scratches will still be obvious after touch up paint. I would have it done professionally, or buy a replacement rim online. Depends on how much it bothers you, and how long you plan to keep the car. Sounds like with your driving style, it will probably happen again.

what does everyone think about touching up the wheel rims? One of the tires has major scratches on and another one has just a couple of nicks. Would hate to have to buy new rims as on one of the tires it's very noticeable. Thanks again!
Many areas now have mobile wheel repair specialists who can come out to your location (home, work) and repair the wheel on site. That may be less expensive than buying new wheels.
