Question wheel paint?

I know this has been asked before but when I did a search I got no returns. What is the correct Gold paint for our GTA wheels? And is one brand better than the other? Thanks I am going to turn a trans am black set over to gold. Though I would go with the rattle can method.

GM wheel color.... PPG code 52 Gold Poly.

Be sure to sand, sand, and sand those wheels some more before painting..... lots of little openings in those diamond spokes. You have to hit all of them for good adhesion.

Thanks Frankie, I think you gave me this last set I painted but that was two years ago and I had lost the info.

Re: wheel paint?

Frankie, you wouldn't happen to have the color for the '87s would you? For some reason I'm thinking it was a different shade of gold.
