    I’ve used polyurethane silver wheel paint on several occasions & several different makes. Not a true silver, more of a silver grey, but all seem pretty tough. Lidl/Aldi have silver sometimes, if it’s the same as the black it will be good.

    for wheels something like epoxy with 2k clear and base would be a durable finish but ££ , aldi metal paint does very well for a fiver

    you dont say what youre wanting to pay

    If it’s still about try silver wheel made by auto extreme, it’s by far the best rattle can silver I have ever used.

    Simoniz wheel silver used to be my 'go to' silver paint but the last two cans I bought were disappointing.

    I've used tractol Massey Ferguson silver mist on rims & it looks ace, apply some 1k lacquer over it for some durability.
