Metallic mauve with actual specks of mica embedded in the paint. That's just my second best idea. I can't tell you my first best idea.

Because it's the color that I'm gonna paint mine.

Really though, if you want something that is pretty much guaranteed to look nice and isn't black, there's gunmetal. I think bronze would look nice too. Really it comes down to what you want though. I tend towards less flashy colors myself-the black/brown side of the spectrum.

I've been considering blue wheels for my SWP, but that's pretty loud. I agree that bronze and gunmetal/titanium would look good. @people with painted rims. Does the paint hold up to regular road/highway use, or do they chip quickly?
