What color are the 70's factory Mopar wheels

I have 4 Mopar factory wheels (the style with the acorn center caps and chrome trim rings) that I need to sandblast and paint and was wondering if anyone knows what color they were painted? Were they gray or silver?

I'd bet Duplicolor has an exact match too. Properly prepped, a quality rattle-can job should be able to do a very nice job on any wheels. With Duplicolor's paint and wheel-specific clear-coat, I was able to refinish some C5 Corvette ZO6 wheels to be indistinguishable from another pristine set that I have.
