Small little mark on one tire and looking for ideas on how to best cover it up (black paint or similar). Any ideas?

Ha, not a bad idea honestly. Thanks!

Has anyone tried this on any of their cars in the past?
Yes. It turns purple (lightens up over time.) Depending on size maybe try nail polish or a paint pen from an auto parts store

Nooooo already?! What happened?
I slightly curbed a tire only today and was dreading looking as I turned the corner. Sharpie black is actually dark purple so I would not recommend that. I’d get black car touch up paint, there are a few sites online that sell small bottles, as do the auto parts chains. Just gotta hope it matches well enough.

Tire or Rim?

Just a tiny scratch. Not sure where it came from. Near the tire so not noticeable unless I tell you where to look. Just seeing if anyone had a specific solution or color code to look for in paint.

I touched up the wheels on the Wife’s Durango before we sold it. Used Rustoleum gloss black wheel paint. It’s a spray but I sprayed into an empty can and used a brush. Was a good match for small scratches.

Do you have a link to the product? Doing a quick search, I am not finding your described product at the local hardware stores.
