Which paint is almost PERFECT match for RX8 OEM wheel touch ups?

I did my research and came out in these two paints:

1) Mazda Sunlight Silver

2) Duplicolor TY 01602, Toyota "Lunar Mist Metallic" 1C8

Which one from the two above should I buy?

Anyone with 1st hand experience?

Is there any other paint that Im missing?

Cheers,

Thanks for the reply alnielsen.

Actually, the link you suggested is one of the many links that I researched, which made me a bit confused about the issue, and had to come up with the above question

I personally would have them stripped and power coated. I don't know if the option is available to you.

I recently purchased the RX8 (series 1 model) and I love the rims as they are. The scratches are only minor, however, but perhaps in the future, I'll consider powdercoating for drastically changing the color and making them black.

To find it here you'd need to search for the "road rash" thread. I used it on some rash, and it matched perfectly.
Simplified.

Duplicolor High Performance Wheel Coating HWP101 Silver according to SayNoToPistons

Anyone tried the 'Wurth Alloy Wheel Spray Paint' to fix curb-scratches?
