My 2 cents, it depends. Which is basically not an answer, as there are many factors at play. Personal preference, wheel choice, drop, and of course car color have to align to pull off a non-standard color. If one is running as wide a wheel width and offset, with a 2+ inch drop, then having fun with colors can be tastefully maximized. Again, my 2 cents.

The SVT looks good. Black can pull off any color. White too can pull off any color. Silvers are a bit more difficult and would probably generate a bit of additional "opinon-ation". In the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is your money. Spend as you wish.

Green Rims

I think it's all a matter of preference but i like the color green with black so much better. Here is my 02 Focus SVT. On one of the photos you will see red but seeing as so many people have done the red & black combo. I decided to go Grabber Green and Pitch Black Pearl.

You got 3 shades of green on your car. Painted grilles never look good, but in your case, it looks absolutely terrible. The wheels look like a 6 year old painted them, they are spotty and blotchy. Why would you paint the entire mirror and not just the caps? The interior is wrong on sooo many levels smh

Just because a part is easily removable, doesn't mean it should be painted.

This is not 2001 anymore, the interior parts you painted are hard to find. Only the SVT has that particular shade of grey. When you wise up and decide that being a ricer is no fun, good luck on trying to find parts to revert that car back into a respectable SVT again.

If you want to do green, do something like this:

Except for the shrinking lol

Because my plans are to do a two tone paint job with Grabber green top half of the car and Pitch Black Pearl on the bottom 1/2 that is why the grille and the mirrors are done that way. Besides I am building a custom show car as well. The wheels are better to see in person, what I did was I painted them flat black then I sprayed grabber green over the black lightly. Then my friend said it looks like you ran out of paint. So she suggested that I take paint brushes and give it the splatter affect. I have received many compliments on the focus. I just have to explain the whole red part is all.
