Help me choose a new color for my fiftenn52 Tarmacs

I originally had the wheels powdercoated white and even though they look great, they are impossible to keep clean. So here are a few I color ideas I've been tossing around.

Which do you like?

I will argue that "a lot of people use that green" or that it's "played out". I can only think of a handfull of people that have that color on their wheels,and only one isn't using plastidip. The only one that used to use that color was ken block, but no more.

Now black.... EVERYONE and their grandmother uses black on their wheels. Plus, with black, you lose the design of the wheel into a sea of blackness... I might as well throw on steelies since while rolloing you couldn't tell the difference.

Rant over. lol
