    If for road use then Anthracite will always look good. White would be a bit daring but will also look good.

    If for track use or summer use, go bright and bold

    Black or grey wheels are the best for looking clean as they just hide all the brake dust. I bought a set of black wheels that when washed turned out to be grey lol
