Does anyone know the correct color for the 5-spoke 1971 ralley wheels? Any suggestions for brand? I know it's kind of a charcoal grey color. But, I'm looking for the correct paint.

Thanks
Lee

The correct color was referred to as Dark Grey. According to Paul Herd's "Chevelle SS Restoration Guide", the codes were (by manufacturer):
DQE-32961 (Ditzler)
71B16 (Rinshed Mason)
9901L (DuPont).
However, my paint supplier (PPG) advises that the foregoing numbers are not currently valid. He was able to cross-reference the number as DCC32961, in PPG.

This paint is extremely low solids (very watery). It will require at least three light coats to cover a properly primered wheel. Avoid the temptation to put it on wet. When it dries, it has very low luster. The correct appearance will look like an old magnesium wheel.
