Best wheel finish for a white car

Cloud 9 Sedan, by far my toughest color to choose a rim from. I've looked at every finish attempting to find the one that complements the white color the best, from black to white and hyper black to hyper silver. They all have advantages and disadvantages. So far I like these the most:

Konig Unknowns


konig Tuners


Kyowa KR228 Hyper Black


Speedy Lite 5


The car is not a performance car, therefore, I feel that although black might seem ok it might send the wrong signal. Clean might be closer to my goal. Can black look clean? Chrome seems kind of ghetto if that's even right to say. It has been over saturated for so long now that I feel it has lost it's value and spark of authentication.

Let me know what you guys think and send me some other options.......out.

Gunmetal, dark gray, and even the right shade of bronze look good on white. Rota has a lot of nice colors.

Bronze does look nice, but then so would a black rim with a polished lip.

Dude, do like me and go with bronze. As soon as F2 puts those BSA wheels back on the page, I'm definitely buying the bronze ones with the deep lip.

Go with the Kyowa KR228 Hyper Black wheels - My friend had a white foci with ADR black wheels (polished lip) and the look was just amazing.

I think the dark rims /w a polished lip would look nice on a white car... as for a blue car I think that some multi-spoke SVT rims would look sweet on that

Cheers!
