    Here is one in the sun on the 70 Z28 survivor, these are the original tires so the wheels almost have to be original finish...

    Well if you have a survivor rim, how does it compare to your painted rims? Or is that a picture from online?
    Looking at pictures of these rims online it gets so hard to tell. The color varies so much because of lighting, cameras, flash etc.... A picture of the two side by side in same lighting would be a good comparison.

    Jack's old 70 Z28.
    The orig spare pic color tone differs due to the flash. Non flash on the mounted rim.

    The wheels on my 73 are powder coated as well. should stand up a lot better than paint.

    Hi Ralph

    Welcome to the site - see my post #32 with pic of my rims . I used a rattle can ( specific for 70 z28) from Camaro central with good sem primer .
