It's probably Emerald green like mine, but in California Emerald Green is the same as British racing green.

^+1 and they look good.

Kosei are good choices too. Only problem I see with 16s are the tire choices. Konig Feather 16x7s are alright looking too

I got rid of some weight when I went from the nasty chrome wheels to stockers, and the car does feel sharper. I would strongly suggest staying away from heavy wheels.
