BMW wheel paint codes:
Below are the most common wheel paint codes, not all are shown. Modern BMW wheels have become more complex by not only being painted with unique colors, but also unique combinations compared to wheels found on BMW classics, which have typically been just silver. Reference the chart below for the paint codes and under the chart you will find further information on the most common paint colors.
Identifying your current paint code is not as easy as finding the paint code for the body of your vehicle. The wheels are not identified with any markings to identify the existing paint code. The most common paint code is 144 for wheels up until the early 2000s when BMW then started to transfer to more modern colors and paint processes.
