I've read the few forum (posts and topics) regarding the beauty rings.
I'm in a unique position. I bought a 2018 Raptor that has Gen 1 SVT Wheels. I'm not sure if they were originally 2013 or 2014 takeoffs because the previous owner had them powder coated red to match the truck. Only problem is the red didn't match the RUBY red of the truck and I hate it.
After a failed attempt at plasti-dip painting, I've decided to re-coat the beauty rings to a color that matches the 2014 SE SVT wheels. This would be especially cool for me as I have owned a 2014 SE in Ruby red and I love the color combo.

Question: Does anyone know a powder coat color that would closely match? (Note: the 2013's beauty rings were not the same as the 2014.)
The color I picked was 'Argent Silver' but I'm starting to think it's going to be too bright... Any advice/suggestions?

Pics for references. (The picture of the 2018/14 top/bottom is mine.)

User @Morgan posted these pics. I like the contrast, but I think it's a bit "too light" color of a silver for what I'm looking for.
And I fear this is what the Argent Silver will yield...

Just for awareness, the rings on my truck were polished to a satin finish- no powdercoat involved. (part of the motivation was that a tire shop can knick the ring now and it will most likely go unseen)

I tried many colors in the past and one of the closest colors I could find was kingsport grey from prismatic. It wasn't spot on but pretty close and slightly more gloss.

Here is the color on a wheel I bought nearly a decade ago.

And here is the link to prismatic

That looks great. Looks a hair dark, potentially?
