Default Best wheel color for BRP?

I have a 2002 BRP 2.5 RS and I'll soon be in the market for a set of aftermarket wheels. Right now, I'm thinking that I'll be on a budget that necessitates choosing a set of Rotas, but Enkei's might be within my price range as well.

The problem I'm having now is that there are very few pictures of BRP RSes out there with aftermarket rims, and even fewer pics available that depict GDA BRP RSes! I've run many a search and didn't come up with more than one or two pictures that didn't help all that much

So, in your opinion, which model of Rotas would you recommend and in what color? I have pics of my car available here . I'm partial to Subzeros, SDRs, and Tarmac IIs at the moment, but I'm sure other people have their opinions. Thanks a lot!

I'm not a big fan of gold on BRP, but the white looks nice. I haven't seen that color on BRP yet. Thanks for the response!

The downshift is OK, but I'm still looking on opinions for a set of gunmetal Subzeros or royal grey Tarmac II's. What do you guys think?

black or dark wheels look great on BRP. I got a set of gunmetallic tarmacs for my silver...they're close to black...and when dirty look a lil dark bronzish. subydude's gallery and the member gallery here oughta give you plenty of ideas. Good luck.

you can go either way... real dark or real light....

white looks real nice on that car.

gunmetallic as bobsrex mentioned would look nice aswell...

check out some color schemes for your car here:

good luck!

Thanks, SD. That helped

I'm still thinking of getting either the gunmetal or bronze Tarmac II's, but I haven't decided yet. If and when I buy them I'll be sure to take pics!
