Fusion Paint color for wheel center cap

I will be home exactly seven days after I pickup my new 5er before I leave for the Oregon Gathering. There are some small items I want to get done in that time. One of them, is to paint the plastic center caps so they match the white wheels better. The cover looks cream color and doesn't match at all.

I've searched the forum for Fusion uses and matched up everything from propane tanks to the shell. Has anyone painted those center caps? What color of Fusion paint did you use? Looks like the wheels are a bright white?

I'd just buy every shade of white and see which cap matches best. Then return all the others.

Dave & Charlie, yeah there are both of those solutions.

But I had hoped someone had already done it and would save me some time, money and effort.

I actually like the white wheels. White tug, white trailer. What's not to like? Besides, I needed to crop the build sheet. Fancy wheels can/may be a future investment. AND, I do know about the maintenance with steel wheels because of rust issues. Wax, wax, wax! Anyone remember Crager Super Spokes? Glancing at those suckers sideways caused them to rust, but mine never did... wax on, wax off...

I know there is a huge group having dinner at the rally... I'll be (kinda/sorta) patient.

I had Cragers on my first new car - 1967 navy blue Mustang convertible (which I waxed a LOT.)

Black center caps would look fine, but if your set on white you can try the plasti dip line. It peels off if you don't like it but it is pretty durable. Plasti Dip Protective Coating Products | Plasti Dip Protective Coating Products | Rubber Dip Coating besides doesn't black go with everything ??
