I posted gold, but I think a darker bronze would look sweet :)

I chose white But honestly, for the color your car is, I think polished or silver would look best.

Agreed! Colour of car has a lot to do with what colour wheels looks best on it!

current color of rims are smoked chrome....pretty close to magnum's suggestion...but with a little less shine...im not into shiny finishes at all...i do like the smoked look but they have a few chips in the finish so they need a facelift...

fyi...ill be doing the painting myself aswell....i was thinking BBS gold, but also like the chevy orange...seen a st165 on here with orange wheels and it kinda grew on me...

For that particular design I wouldn't go with a bright color. Leave them silver.

Look at some pics in google images of rims that are orange or green. Look at the common design themes. They're almost never a delicate spoke design like the rims you pictured. Usually it's classic spoke or mesh designs. I think that rim is too delicate looking to pull of a bright color.

They look like a bitch to keep clean.

I religiously wash my car....its not a problem for me at all lol my girlfriend thinks I have some kind of obsession with keeping it clean and shiny.......I like the white....for now.... re finishing them is an option for the future...
