    White would not work with those wheels on any car, especially not a white one.

    A very light smoke might look good. Post up a photo of your car from the same angle and see if someone can paintshop a few different options for you.

    Black or dark grey for me on a white car. Black wheels on a white car is the big new(ish) look, I would go for a really dark grey.
