Any tips on touching up aftermarket rims?

Just scraped up one of my new GT500-style aluminum rims (painted charcoal; from American Muscle). Damn curb. Any tips for touching up? I imagine this has come up before but I'm not seeing any threads jumping out to me on this.

As a follow-up to my post and, perhaps as a tip to others, I mixed black and white model paint (to get the charcoal color) and actually came up with a perfect match. These were not deep scratches and so far I'm amazed at how it turned out. When I swap them out for winter I may repair them more gracefully but this seems like a good solution for now.

I'm sorry to hear about the damage to your Rim, however I'm glad to hear you were able to find a temporary fix! Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
