Default Rally II wheel colors for modern paint systems, is there a cross?

By now, the original PPG Rally II wheel paint codes have been discussed ad nauseum. My question is, do these codes cross over to any of the modern paint systems and if so, what are they and for which system?

I restored the original 14x7 JS wheels for my '70 Formula 3 or 4 years ago, and my local auto paint store was able to mix paints to the PPG codes. I actually had them mix single stage urethane in the 2K rattle cans.
I used the following codes:

Argent Silver: PPG Code 8568
Charcoal: PPG/DDL 32947
Grey (Back side): PPG Code 35413

I was very happy with the results.

I used Keith's paint codes when I restored the Rally II wheels on my old 71 Trans Am.

I use DP40LF on the back. Can use a semi gloss 2k clear over it if needed. The epoxy makes it very durable and the clear makes it a rinse off clean.

I use the rally wheel argent for the silver part.
This is like a "which camshaft" question...

I was able to get all three colors crossed to the Omni line of paint. The charcoal I had to call PPG and speak with someone in the color library and have the paint store call to get the mixing code. All three were mixed as urethane.
