touching up matte black rims

I just got matte black rims like a few ago and I already notice tiny chips and minor scratches probably from rocks on roads. Is there a way I can touch it up myself with some sort of paint that I can buy? Know where I can buy it?

I wish I had some wisdom for you. Are there any wheel repair shops in your area? Give one a call to get their thoughts.

This paint will match pretty well, its a satin finish black. You could spray the aerosol onto a piece of cardboard or something then use a touch-up brush to dab it on the chips.

My wheels are suffering the same fate, I'm actually thinking about breaking them down and having the rim sections powdercoated satin black so that they will hold up better.
