Good idea. I’ll check with Buick dealer who did the aluminum rim touchup which liked like new.There are some company’s who will come to you and repair it for you if you want to go that route as well
I have a surface rust spot on the door of the Toyota. I’ve tried fixing it twice alcohol, dremel, heat, primer, touch up paint, heat. Both times didn’t last. Frustrating.I had a small 3" scratch like that on one of my dynamics package rims. Within 2 weeks of getting my scatpack I curb rashed it while not paying attention parking at Home Depot. What I did....
I masked off the spot with painter's tape/newspaper.
Used a dremel tool to lightly sand the spot to make it smooth again.
Shot it with a couple of coats of semi-gloss black automotive paint.
Let it cure for a few hours before driving the car.
A day or two later, I went back over the edges with a lint free towel and some lacquer thinner to lightly rub the lines where the paint transitioned at the edge of the tape. After that, you couldn't really tell it had been painted unless you knew exactly where the spot was and your nose was within a foot of the wheel.
I had a rock chip on the hood of my old Kia Sorento that would do that. Ultimately, I used a tiny burr bit on the dremel and "dug out the area of the chip. It was about the diameter of a pencil eraser. I kept going until I got nothing but bright metal. I hit the area with Prep-sol and let it dry. I then masked it off and gave it a coat of primer. 15 mins later, I hit it with a coat of base coat. I repeated that until the level of the paint was nearly flush with the surrounding paint. Then I switched to clear coat and gave it two coats of that. That got it approximately level (perhaps a few thousandths higher) with the surrounding paint. I let that cure for a week or two and then hit the entire hood with fine grit polish and then wax. Like the wheel, if you know EXACTLY where to look you can eventually find it, but from more than a foot away, it's invisible. That was a couple of years ago and it's holding up. I got the paint from paintscratch.com and it matched very well.I have a surface rust spot on the door of the Toyota. I’ve tried fixing it twice alcohol, dremel, heat, primer, touch up paint, heat.

Not really noticeable except to me. It has the Gyeon protection for now. Going to check with sellers on what might be a close match even if it’s not Mopar.Seriously, make a temp repair using a large Sharpie. It will mask the damage until you make a permanent repair.
