Default cant decide on wheels or color

I have a dilema. I have an 05 black WRX wagon. I want new wheels, but cant decide between 2 wheels, or 2 colors.

the contestants are the ROTA tarmacII's and the ROTA torque's
The colors I am debating between are Gold and Steel Grey, possibly gunmetallic.

What in your opinion would look best.

Wait for the poll.

How about Bronze? Depending on the shade of bronze that is what I would go with.

My stock wheels are just like yours and are a very light bronze / champagne color. I meant one of the darker bronzes like you see on volks or gram lights

Gold Torques, FTW. Very nice looking wheels.

Bronze wheels just look dirty on a clean black car. Go gold.

i think a nicely shined up bronze wheel looks sexy on a black car. i've painted my stockers a nice deep bronze and when they get cleaned damn is it awesome. i wish i had some pics but sadly i do not as of now.

i think black with gold rims is a really sick combo. =) but the only thing i don't like about a black car is that it gets dirty very easily. other than that it is an awesome combo.

How about something lighter than those brick like Rotas. I was interested in the Rotas at first but their wheight turned me off. That and the fact that EVERYBODY has em. On second thought go ahead and get some so I will continue being unique.

Rotas are sort of heavy, yes, but they look great and the price is reasonable. If there was a Rota wheel/tire combo that weighed as much as my stockers, I'd have them by now. Still, I look at Rotas often..

Black and gold look really well together and I like the TarmacII's as well.

There COULD, but I had ROTA's on my last rex, and I like the price. I don't want to go spending a fortune on wheels.
