Flat black is always a safe bet. Looks good with most colors and since there's no gloss it hides dirt a little bit better. Just my 2 cents man

I think he's looking for something a little different/loud. Plus blue and black don't go together lol

I think blue and black work pretty well, although I guess it depends on the blue.

How do people feel about vinyl wrapping rims? Cheap and easy but idk, something doesn't sit right with me about wrapping a thin sheet of vinyl around the most beat on parts of the car.

That's my thoughts exactly, especially with MA winters, but I keep reading about people doing it and I think I've seen a few around Leominster, vws mostly. Oh well. Scuff/DA/spray bomb > vinyl.
