Touch up paint and repair for Infiniti rim

I just bought a set of 2014 Infiniti QX60 18” rims for my 2015 Pathfinder and there’s a scrap on one spoke that’s about 3/4” in area and about 1/8” deep at the center. Has anyone used rim repair kits that use a special Bondo to repair deep scrapes? I thought JB Weld might be a better choice as it should be harder than the Bondo.
Anyone want to comment? Also what touchup paint would match the original rim colour?
Thanks for your help.

Bondo has this Reinforced Metal Filler.

They also have this Spot Putty.

As for the paint, try looking it up. "Infinity Rim Color" or something.

JB WILL be harder but harder to finish smoothly as well as the hardness interferes with smooth product removal to get it nice and even looking. Bondo is made to finish up with sanding that removes the product evenly, the JB will not do that as well. BTDT.

I had a paint shop match the paint as I don’t want to paint the whole rim. Their match is Tungsten Silver Metallic (Motobase LV)
