Color my SVT 5 spokes!

So I'm going to be painting the SVT 5 spokes that I have.
They are a gunmetal color at the moment. The previous owner painted over the OEM color. I pulled the vinyl off of the center caps and found these:




Here's the Focus with the 5spokes in the gunmetal color that I got them in.



I'm leaning towards black, because it goes with the black/green theme. I don't want anything too crazy, but I'm open to any opinions and suggestions!

Ranger, I like them too, so it is possible I just give them a fresh coat of paint in the same color. Just tossing around many ideas inside my head.

I feel like green would just be a bit too "in your face." But I knew once I saw you posted, that green would be your answer. I am toying around with the idea of going black, and maybe either the lip or a line up one of the spokes in green. I don't know yet, hence why I'm asking on here for suggestions.

the gunmetal looks good. How about a darker gold. The green lugs are a nice touch. IMO the black and green is over done, but do you man

You've got green Lugs, pinstripe green on the lip?

If you want to go with blk & green...

Throw out enough ideas you'll find one you like.

I thought the Monster Energy thing was played out plus green/black reminds me of Halloween and Frankenstein's colors. I really like the black and gunmetal thing you could take a little further.
