Try something like the Glasurit Paint Code Finder, which allows you to input an O.E. paint code, to find a match.
Maybe a non-lacquered type offered too.
Other paint manufacturers would have the same service, I guess.
Talk to a professional paint shop, to identify what you need, and make up a litre (?) for you.
If wanting to match to other panels on the car, you might need a colour spectrometer check, to take some account of ageing. Most good paint shops would have one of these.
I'm no expert of re-painting, btw.
For context, the car from the bottom of the windows down was resprayed at some point, meaning it is two different hues of red already! The respray can't have happened too long before it was put into storage as it is very glossy, albeit with a lot of orangepeel and genuine peeling where they didn't key the surface well enough. Consequently it's not going to look showroom quality but I can live with that: I just need a better colour match to the reds I already have. I can get Rouge Furio and Rouge Delage quite readily as a base+clear paint solution, but that isn't what's on the rest of the car. I'll see if I can find anyone who will mix the stuff up or not.
As for the wheels, would Glasurit know what they used? It seems a little bit of a niche to know what colour Citroen used to paint ther wheels but I suppose it's worth a try.
