Gold Wheels Colour Code

Hey people!
I need some help. I'm checking for new wheels for my scooby and found some which match my likes but unfortunately they are silver. I'd like to know what's the colour code of the original impreza wheels..or at least the nearest, so that then I could spray them. Thanks!

Hello i am an owner of a sti 8. I Have prodrive pff7's in gold on mine. Managed to get a paint code from speedline who manufacture the wheels. The paint code used in the Speedline factory for all gold coloured wheels is Akzo Nobel 7E 81208.

One of my freinds owns a refinishing company, he says that to get the exact colour code I will have to buy 1/2 litre of paint as he does not use Akzo Nobel paint and will have to source it from elsewhere. A bit too much for touching up the wheels. Also the Akzo Nobel paint is more a "thick Paint" specially for wheels etc. He said he will mix a colour to match my wheels for me.

I have the original wheels that came with the car but they are a slightly different colour, so if you want that colour then I don't now a paint code. Subaru UK could not even give me a code on those. In my opinion the prodrive wheels are a better colour,a more deep gold.

Good luck.
