'58 Buick Wheel Color

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what the color name or code is of the paint that Buick used on wheels in 1958? I've just purchased a '58 Buick Limited that has been authentically restored with the exception of the wheel color (black). I'd like to change the color to red but would like to use the correct red paint. Any help that is offered will be greatly appreciated.

The wheel color was Seminole Red. This is the same as the body color red in 58. Unfortunately the formula is in synthetic enamel and it is nearly impossible to find any today, Dupont has removed all synthetic emamels. There is no cross over formular to acrylic enamel. Any good paint supplier can do a very close match and come up with the color. PPG might still have synthetic enamels. If you are unable to find anything I might have the formular for the acrylic enamel, but it will take some time.
