I'd go with the dark gunmetal of the EAPs on the SVT's. It would be a nice compliment to the white. Not to light not to dark.

I dunno, after seeing Chris' car (norcalfocus01), I have to say that the white on white for a multi-spoke wheel like that looks sick.

White on white is ok. Not my style but I could see someone liking it. It should look good as long as you don't go with something crazy like orange. Lol

It's really hard to match whites. They come in cool and warm shades. The wrong match looks very wrong. It has to be identical to look good. I also like Gunmetal/argent gray wheels on a white car.

I didn't even think about the matching. Geezer is right, it's gonna be really hard to get a exact match of white.

I might add you have to be on top of white wheels to keep clean.
