Wheels and Tires

Were stock wheels color matched on 1983 911SC cabriolets?

The wheels on my 1983 911SC cabriolet are color matched to the body color. It was my impression that the wheels were only available in a low gloss black. I'm confused I don't like the colored insert but are they period correct? I've attached a photo.
