Pics would help, but you probably be better off having a wheel repair service take care of it. If you only have a small scratch or two, you can handle it yourself. Here it a wheel repair kit that can also be used for touch ups. You can also experiment with some silver auto touch up paint.

If you can remove the wheels, you are going to best off going the wheel repair route such as http://wheelsamerica.com/. I am sure there are companies that offer this service in Toronto as well. Expect to pay $100-150 per wheel for refinishing. The real downside is that you have to be without wheels for a couple of days. I think if you can find a local refinisher, the turnaround should be a couple of days.

The touch up paint is a close match to most german silver wheel paint. Is it a perfect match, probably not. For small repairs can it be used to make your wheel look better, yes. You need to provide pictures to get a better answer whether a spot repair is appropriate for the damage you have. If you're uncomfortable making a repair yourself, I would encourage you to contact your dealer for a mobile wheel repair service, or search for one yourself.
