Default Plain steel wheel code for 68 Firebird with discs?

I have a 68 Firebird that came with the dog dish wheels. The car is a disc brake car. I have been told the correct wheel code is HG but have also read that disc brake cars had HK code wheels. Thanks.

I believe the HG is for drum and HK for disc. And, JC for all Rally 2.
(My '68 with drum brakes came with HG wheels.)
