Black
gold cadmium color
cat iron grey

Any paint color other than those looks silly, IMHO

I think blue looks good. Red looks good but in my opinion is overplayed. I dont see blue calipers often.

Looks great, I have the same wheels, I taped off the lip though, and it has been on for 6 months, looks as good as the day I put it on!!
