Has anyone tried those eBay Rado Gray wheel paints?

Dealer chipped the paint on two of my wheels right around the lug nut holes and is refusing to take responsibility for it (tech probably slammed the socket into the wheel while in a hurry because 3 lug nuts are also rounded). Ford corporate customer service and the dealer are just pointing fingers at each other while nothing is done to take care of my wheels, so I decided to do it myself. There are plenty of wheel paint kits on eBay:

Has anyone ever tried any of them? Are they a close match?

What sketches me out is that they're all from the same seller in the UK. The 3rd link has a single review saying its not even close. The 4th link looks identical to the 3rd, but has 2 reviews saying its perfect. The 5th link has the same 2 reviews from the 4th.

There's also this significantly more expensive kit on Amazon with no reviews:

I'm most tempted to get the first eBay one since it comes with a primer, a lacquer and nice looking applicators and at the price, I'm willing to risk it (obviously trying it on the backside of the wheel first), but I was curious if anyone on here has tried doing something like this and can share result photos. Or maybe recommend a better product?

Why not have them refinished mobile? Well I'm not sure if that's a thing or not now..

The supplier for the ST wheels,Ronal, are famous for not sharing paint formulas. I was able to get a good match from a base coat color mix for a late model Kia. Anyone who wants a good match/ invisible repair must spray it and then clear coat paint it for gloss.
