Anyone making the soft 8 style rims in the mountain gray rim color

As the title states...... do any of the wheel manuf's make a soft 8 style rim that comes in the gray color found on the Wrangler Mountain edition.

I also realize that it would be pretty easy to just paint a soft 8 steely, so additionally does anyone know what gray paint color would match the mountain gray?

I like that idea

Maybe the duplicolor "shadow" black? Probably have to spray a base of metal flake silver first (or sandblast the rim) and it would definitely require touch up every so often, but I think it'd come out pretty nice.

The only thing about the Shadow if it's what I'm thinking is that it's transparent, like nightshades and therefore touch up would be bad, since some areas would be heavier than others. There are tons of Pewter/gunmetal/pick a silvery grey color spray bombs out there... Just pick up a bunch and use the one that is the closest match. Return all the others... Or take something in to the paint store that's the color you want and have it matched.... It is a good idea, someone at Cragar should be listening... And if you are, make a 3.75" bs 15x8" soft 8... Us JK folks like 15's too...
