Default Powder coat wheels closest bbs gold

Got a set of used wheels and I'm gonna blast them and powder coat them. I get the powder from a site called prismatic powders. Just wondering if anyone here has ever done the same thing and knew what color from them is the closest to bbs gold.

Grimmspeed gold in a spray can in a pretty much perfect match but this obviously isn't powercoat. I would purchase a can and do a spray out and then bring that spray out to a coating shop to compare to color chips they have.

Prismatic powder gold, can't link the color on the phone.

Sun gold does look like bbs.

have anybody tried powder coating wheels with salem gold powder by prismatic powders? http://www.prismaticpowders.com/colo...97/SALEM-GOLD/

I'm also trying to replicate the color of the sti bbs gold wheel, picking between prismatic gold or salem gold.
