What he said. On your car I think the gunmetal would look better than the gold.

i have the silver with hyperblack wheels. i love gold wheels but they just don't look right to me on silver cars. if you want to stay away from gunmetal you might consider the bronze that rota offers. it's dark enough to contrast against the silver but not gunmetal like most other silver cars. just an idea.

I agree. The silver gold look just dosen't do it for me @ all. I'd stick with a darker color or just silver like some rota torques in 8" wide.

But out of the two colors you listed and the rims you listed I'd go with the gunmetallic.

gunmetal.
Looks meaner.
Gold/black, gold/blue complementary colors.
Silver/gold Christmas! Add some pine green garland and you'll be ready for next winter!

Sorry HectWRX, no offense.
