paint code confusion-a little help please

Okay, I'm still confused. The above sticky about paint codes says:
Red Jewel Tricoat 80/WA301N

#1 I thought it was called: Red Jewel Tintcoat. That is what it says on my window sticker and on my build sheet it says: GAQ - Red Jewel Tintcoat.
#2 In my trunk it says BC/CC U301N

I googled GM paint codes by year & found this:

2010GMRed Jewel GAQ, 80C X WA301N90858971323, 49762tinted CC




So what is the paint code? I need to know for sure because I am having some wheels painted to match.

Indeed, it is WA301N
Though some places will list it without the WA

BB/CC indicates basecoat/clearcoat - the U on the sticker indicates Upper body color... There would be an L number to ndicate lower color for two tone vehicles.
the tintcoat/tricoat is just a naming difference... the GAQ is the option code for the Red Jewel paint.
