Polish them or have someone polish them for you.

With red, I really do not think many colors go well.

Gold, silver, white, or bronze.

But I say go full polish.

Re: what color should i powder coat my rims

This is a photoshop I did a while ago with someone else's car when I was wondering what color to paint my blades. I found that white with a red lip is too much. I don't know what rims you're painting but white with a little bit of red in the middle is perfect IMO.
