best bet would be to take one of the rims to a paint shop and get the paint matched to the colour on the rim..

A guy on FF matched the colour to his wheels bacl in 2004. He said he got rattle cans from AutoBarn and it was called "antelope". He doesn't say what Car maker colour it was.

After a bit of a search, check the colour code "GMH ANTELOPE PEARL G091/490/91L" year 1998.
