you can look in the buy/sell section to buy a new one, if not you might want to look around your area if there a wheel repair shop. You can do it yourself but no one knows the proper paint color. There are a few threads on that if you search

Nope, its not repainted, its just touch up paint.

And the secret is:

Ford Touch Up Paint.

We own a "Silver Frost" 2001 Windstar so I gave my dad's touch up paint a try. Worked out great.

It says "Silver Frost" on the touch up paint bottle. I don't know the exact paint code but I am sure someone can find that out with this info. All I know is, its a good match.

It does not look that bad! 10 feet away I bet you cant notice it. If you got some balls you could try to sand
and feather the edges to the stock paint, and do a re touch paint.

hmm using my google skillz ive come up with

TU or 11M Silver Frost Metallic
TS Silver Frost Metallic B/C


the best bet would be for raptor to find the color code on the car (usually a sticker in one of the doors)
