When Curbs Get Carried Away
How to touch up your T Sportline Tesla Wheels
We live in an increasingly busy world and sometimes, our vehicles wheels get rubbed the wrong way because of it. Whether its the at the fast-food drive-through or at the school pickup line, curbs can mar our wheels and create a blemish on an otherwise pristine exterior. Fear not, though, as T Sportline is here with a DIY tutorial on how to make quick repairs to minor curb rash.
Of course, T Sportline can certainly sell you replacement wheels if thats the way you want to roll, but sometimes a simple touch-up can be good enough. With that in mind, T Sportline offers its Tesla Wheel Touch Up Paint in various colors, including Aero Wheel, Gunpowder Gray, Brilliant Silver, Satin/Onyx Black, Metallic Gray, Space Gray, Gloss Black. The paint is properly formulated to a heavy duty, industrial specification suitable for use on automotive wheels. T Sportline Wheel Touch-Up Paint is intended for use on small scratches, dings, and minor curb rash. For major curb damage, we recommend professional wheel refinishing or wheel replacement.
To make it easier to get to and work the surface, rotate the wheel to get the desired repair area positioned at 12 oclock. Evaluate the damaged area. If the damage is beyond just using the touch-up paint alone, you can apply some duct tape to the tire to prevent scuffing the tire with the file or sandpaper, as well as getting paint on it.

stphw said:Has anyone successfully imported or bought touch up paint for model 3 aero wheels? The American forums talk about Duplicolor’s AFM0360 – doesn’t seemed to be stocked anywhere in Oz and Amazon don’t ship anything here. 1 place on ebay will ship it here for about $60. Tesla’s paint code is PMTG.
