Green Wheels to Match 09 Jeep Green

I've seen a few pics of tan wheels. Has anyone painted wheels (whether stock or steelies or aftermarket) "Jeep Green" to match the dark green "Jeep Green Metallic" color? I believe the paint gloss should be satin or flat. I'm basically going for a military look.

Krylon's Moss Green looks possible.

So does Rustoleum Hunt Club Green.

I figured I'd get some Cragars or Rugged Ridges, paint them all Green, and be done with it. I recently plastidipped my stock wheels, and they look OK, but the plastidip is a little more fragile than I expected, and I like the look of the D Window or Soft 8 Wheels better for overall theme I'm going for.

This is interesting, I've been wondering what they would look like too.
Here's some threads where guys painted their wheels green:

It's gonna take a minute to get rims, get them painted, and put on the Duratracs I want, but I definitely will keep everyone posted!

If anyone has ideas on the right paint, I'd still really appreciate it.

Isn't the exact paint type send colour written somewhere on the doorframe? Or is that only for old cars? Did they stop doing that?

Yup, it's on the door frame. Any paint shop should be able to mix some up.

I answered own question: Mopar makes a spraypaint in the exact color. So with a semigloss or satin clearcoat it would probably look pretty good and not too flashy, I should think.
