Very nice! You can tell it's the '06 due the the factory body kit. I could't wait that long so I got my 05 ST!
Anyways, about your wheels, do you mean you want to paint the entire rim or just perhaps the spokes or what? I think if you go black it might be a bit much, and I don't think you want to go all Mennonite on us! I'd leave the tires alone and do the trick with the headlights where you can paint the inside.

Black rims on black cars = teh sux in my opinion, I honestly hate that look myself, on most. On some cars it looks ok but it all depends.

White, would stand out WAY to much and they are a total PITA to keep clean, trust me. I'd honestly stick with what you got and if you do want a different look, save up and get a good set of aftermarket rims for it.
