1984 Trans Am Gold Wheel Paint
« on: August 13, 2019, 09:44:30 PM »
Hello all,

We are trying to find some paint to touch up the gold 15 inch rims on my dad's 1984 trans am.  So far, we haven't found a spray paint that matches the color of the rims.  From what I found on another forum, the color code for these wheels is 55P.

Doing some searching online, I found three different colors of gold that are available for 1984 trans am wheels - Placer Gold, Daytona Gold, and California Gold.  Does anyone know if one of these colors is correct for these wheels, or if there is another paint color that will work?


Thank you!

Code 55 is the same as what earlier model Firebirds had for their Gold snowflake wheels also. Placer Gold is available through OER in pressure packs, likewise anyone who does them specifically for Snowflake rims should be the same gold.  I can't comment on the quality or match as can't get those here. The other colours may be the same paint, just given different names under different models.

Being a 1984 you may have better luck going to a body shop and getting some paint. Also, that wheel looks to be in pretty good shape, you may be able to get it colour matched as well. There is a napa in my area that will do that. I think they will even sell the paint in spray bombs. I had the codes for my 77 but had zero luck on all avenues because of the change in formulations due to epa  regulations.
