I don't think they're a special black. Any black touch up paint should be just fine.

I just wasn't sure if there was a BMW factory paint color for those like the kinds for the body (i.e. sapphire black etc.)

There is but that's what I meant. I don't believe the wheels are a special black. ie sapphire black. Just like the trim on all the X5s (bottom half of the side view mirrors) is just black even if you have a white, red, carbon black, or sapphire black. It's just generic black.

A while back I purchased a small container of gloss black rim paint on eBay and it worked great. Came with a small brush, like finger nail polish.

If I'm not mistaken, it's BMW's jet black paint.

Looked good? Have you seen them in the light after they dried?
