ok I need some help. I have a '59 I am going to paint kalahari beige. I am currently trying to get a rolling chassis done and I need to do the rims. I met a guy at a show a few years ago with a kalahari beige with two tone green rims on it. He said they were the orginal colors to the car. However, when I searched Samba the only reference i can find is a center light brown (L450) and rim (L343) Kalahari beige.

On my 63 it has two tone green wheel color as you describe. L-381 sea green centers and l-286 turquoise white. Which is a very light green or white green shade. Iíve only seen it on 62-63 cars

Kalahari would of never had green wheels. The guy was talking out of his ass.
Like stated above the picture you posted is the correct wheel color.

Thats going to be pretty tough, as most of the mixture codes are long gone.
Honestly, your best bet is to find and original (tough as well), and have it color matched.
Thats what I have had to do both times when painting my rims.
