Default should i paint my stock STI wheels white?

i want to paint my rims. i have a 04 java black pearl sti, and want to change it up, but im kinda broke so i figure painting the rims would be a good start. i havent seen the bbs's in white yet and i think it would look good. i dont want to go black. its over played imo. so if you have any ideas for me colors or whatever let me know, or your opinion on the white.

thanks,
kyle

GRAMMATIK MACHT FREI!!

I could be the grammar Nazi, but that defeats the purpose of letting the guy know that it is OK to do what he wants with his car.

Too many people here bash personal choices.

Like I said earlier not trying to please anyone else just looking for ideas. And I was indecisive, but I decided to clean them today and I think I'm staying silver for now, they Almost loom white they are so clean. I will put up pics tonight. All I have to say to anyone planning on cleaning their rims. Wd-40 does the trick. Engine cleaner sucks and just water and soap takes alot of work. Haha spray some wd-40 on wait for 5-10 mins and wipe all the dirt and break dust off.
