Depends on the primer.

Even if it is not a tintable primer, if you use a (mixing tint-only) and keep it under 5% by volume, 2K primers will be fine.

Dupont has value shade, and ppg has similar, don't know the name off hand. The color should tell you what shade of grey to use for best coverage. Marhyde makes a tintable high build primer (its a real light grey without tinting), that i tinted with color, but you had to add quite a bit to get a noticable difference, and the color was sort of pastel. Don't know if it payed that much to do. Would have been better off just looking for a primer that came just about the right shade I needed or shot on a coat of sealer when all done priming.

For shades of gray why not get some white and black like the SPI
primers and mix to your liking?
