I would find a light wheel take as much weight off of rotating mass as possible. That is if you are going to be auto crossing or racing.

I voted gunmetal, but for you, I say bronze cause it would match your hair more.

He's got a good point henry. and change that strip around your grill to match the wheels and your hair. the finer details really bring out a car!

doesnt the red strip already match my hair but i was thinking that if i got the red lugs instead of the blue ones it would be better but then i dont know if they make a red valve stem so the lugs would be outta place with the blue valve stem

Gunmetal! How much they weigh... remember rims are unsprung weight, so don't get them too heavy.
