What color for my new rims?

So I'm picking up a set of used SVT Rims on Sunday with no tires. There are some scratches on the rim that I plan to repair but all in all the rims need a new paint job. These are the standard SVT 5 Spokes of course in the 17" diameter.

My question is, which color do you think I just paint them? Mind you these are going on the '07 and will be being used for Auto-X and other like events so they will be getting dirty. I'm thinking John Deere Flat Tractor Black or a Gloss White but I honestly cannot decide.

So what do you guys think?

I've already got a set of Dark Argents which look good but I want this other set to be different.

Flat black, but if you want to do something fun paint them red or something colorful.
