I like gold wheels in general, but I think dark grey would be my preference since:

1) Nice contrast with the gold calipers

2) Really goes well on white

If you had WRB paint... gold would be the pick, but for white (which I love), grey is perfect.

For our Bugeye, I have 17" O.Z. Prodrive P1s in gold, which I really like with the blue. This is an older pic:
Our '21 STI is white, and the stock wheels are the Enkeis, but with that newer style where some of the spokes are machined, which really changes the look of the wheel. I prefer the older style where they were completely grey:

The wheels I think I am dreaming about for this car are the Rays 57DRs in either satin black or dark grey... but that is way in the future... Have to finish the Bugeye "rebuild" first...
Understand, I have been on the fence about Gold.. I have OE GOLD BBS's and have thought about changing one of the other OE Wheels I have to Gold..But I not confident right now that the Current Powder coat matches the OE Gold perfectly.. and thats What I would want.. Perfection
