    I just think clean silver wheels look :icon_thumright: and black are a bit too :ninja: unless the car has other exterior mods (black roof, bonnet, etc)

    Why not go White with the wheels ? I've always liked that look, thought it looked great on the old White vectra supertourings with the White bbs as standard !

    It can work with the right wheels.

    This car had the wheels specially finished in colour coded white, I think it works well:
