Paint for Wheels

I just bought my first Alfa, a 1986 Spider Quadrifoglia. I am doing a sympathetic restoration and plan on putting the wheels through my blasting cabinet and giving them a fresh coat of paint. Would anyone have a recommendation on a brand of primer and finish coat that is close to the original color?

Thanks for the guidance.

I used this stuff on a set of S3 Spider wheels, came out quite nice:

Dupli-Color® Silver Wheel Coating
Part # HWP101 SKU: 9382633

Read the review that someone left for it (bad), not sure what he did but I didn't have any of those problems! I can't find the pics I had of them, I sold them a year or so ago.

I also use this paint and can say that it works well, goes on easily, lasts a long time and looks good. Have done 3 sets of wheels with it and the 1st set of Turbinas, done 12 years ago and driven as my daily, lasted until this summer when I refinished them with the same paint.

Get out there and DRIVE !
