Default Powder coating straw wheels

Hello ,
I am looking to have my wheels powder coated . They are "straw" and I was hoping that somebody has a color , or company that has something close !
My friends company deals with Prismatic if that helps . I bought 4 new Lester's today so I am excited to say the least .
Thanks in advance everyone .
Vinny in NJ
Have a GREAT day !

Straw was a pinstripe color, not a wheel color. Wheels were Tacoma Cream. https://www.modelawheelcolors.com/

I have owned the car now for 6 years and I am in a T , A , & AACA club and have only ever had them referred to as straw . As a matter of fact , until today I have never even heard of Tacoma Cream .
So are my wheels correct ? Probably not . Do they look awesome in straw , YES !
I am not overly concerned with it being 100% original as I also run WWW tires as well which I believe also make it look great !
I have tried 3 times to upload pictures over the last day and have not been able to .
Thanks again to all who have replied it is GREATLY appreciated !!!!!!!!!!!

Most powder coaters know the RAL colors. I had my wheels coated with RAL 1002 and they are very close to the Ford color chips.
