Pros: finish, colour, ease of application
Cons: you must do your prep, and shake it for 2 mins
"This paint is really easy to use.
Just follow the instructions carefully, do your prep and use a high quality primer (UPol is good).
The colour is spot on, not as dark as the cap suggests, it's a very common dark grey used on wheels.
The finish is clear, smooth and almost metallic. I got zero runs on the whole job so it's a high quality paint. Dries perfectly, just make sure you use the recommended Halfords lacquer as per the can.
Coverage is 1 to 1.5 wheels per can (2 coats).

"On my car (Seat Bocanegra) I have dark alloy wheels which sit proud of the rim, and pick up all the stone chips on winter roads. The car manuafacturer does not supply a touch up paint, so I thought I would have to employ a wheel refurbishment company for a few stone chips, or take a chance with a touch up paint. Anthracite wheel paint, was the paint I took my chances with. The colour is not exact, but close enough for a few small stone chips.
It would have been nice to have a touch-up pen, to reduce the cost, but did not feel for a whole can the price was too bad. So instead used the old trick of spraying in the lid and using a small brush to touch up the spots. Word of warning - the filler primer from Halfords touch-up kits dissolve with this paint. i.e even after the 24 hours hardening, too much paint on the first coat will have the top coat and primer mixing! Just use a small amount and light brush strokes for the first coat, and it will be fine. Do not try to cover the chip with one coat, build the colour up.
