Default You decide: Wheel Paint

Okay.. I have picked up a set of Kosei K1s. They were white but that will not go well with my color scheme. I decided to refinish them bronze, but I can't decide if that will clash w/ the silver stripes on my car. I have attached a car pic w/ silver wheels (17x7 enkei RS-7).. you will need to imagine the bronze. Vote away.

Light bronze looks too gold. If you want bronze I'd go with the bronze that is used on the heliums. I voted silver.

I like the silver, but not as bright. Maybe a shade or two darker to closer match the stripes.

The bronze is good, but again a shade off.
