Rim color?

So i finally decided to go back to my Rota c10's but i dont like the sports bronze. I want something a bit brighter. Im giving my konig incidents to my girl and going to get my rims powercoated. Any ideas on which might look better on my car? Im torn between white, gold, or silver

Re: Rim color?

White on blue might look nice. For suggestions on Blue preludes, I suggest searching EBPLudeSH here on PZ. He has one the cleanest ludes I've ever seen.

Re: Rim color?

Im not a huge fan of white rims, saw a jetta that was similar to EBP color and looked tacky as hell. Go with Bronze.

Re: Rim color?

I think it depends if they're cast or forged rims which is what will allow u to powder coat or not... I didnt even know that Rays and BBS highly advise against powder coating their rims due to structural integrity issues.
This is a cool read tho, if u want to pursue it. >>> evoxforums.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-15316.html

Re: Rim color?

I'd go for a light bronze that's in the first rim picture, or black with a blue around the edge of the rim.
