Wheels for Silver Ignition? Advice? Size? Opinions?

So I went looking through so many pictures of these aggressive and great rims I just don't have the experience or imagination to be able to picture what rims would fit the Silver Ignition color.

Ive looked around and didn't find a whole lot of wheels on the Silver Ignition.

Post any ideas ? thoughts? advice? wheel size? and definitely pics!

I was thinking personally something like this but I'm not a huge fan of chrome, I'm open to a wide variety of suggestions and if you are a fellow Silver Ignition own post your wheels as well.

Thanks guys

Can't go with black wheels. Anything looks go with black and get 18s close the nasty fender gap. As much as I hate people having the same set up, but black enkei raijins on the silver looks good to me.

Very vague question considering budget would be the main factor on choosing wheels.

Our car color falls in the same category as Argento (the other silver looking color for the FRS). The selection that best fits our car color is Black, Gunmetal, Hyper Black, Hyper Silver, White, Blue and Red. Avoid all Bronze and most gold colors wheels. Only a certain Gold will actually fit right with our car like Advan Gold. I've photoshopped many wheels on Silver Ignition so far. Here's a quick example.

We recently released 19" fitments for the Subaru BRZ & Scion FRS and the results are outstanding. Our 5x100 19x8.5/19x10 Vossen CV3's were specifically designed for this beauty to add a little more concave in the tuner scene.

RAYS ZE40 in Matte Blue Gunmetal is a low-key blue that would complement the blue tinge in your paint and its gunmetal aspect would complement your silver. Like Silver Ignition, its color can change with lighting. The sporty/lightweight yet classy combo plus dual color complements make it my #1 choice of wheels if I had Silver Ignition. Here are some against white (maybe you can be the first Silver Ignition example!):







If I had Argento, I'd try white wheels to be different enough but still tasteful. Oddly, I wouldn't put white wheels on Silver Ignition.

Like a lot of people have said- you can't go wrong with gunmetal or graphite type colors. Gray or other silvers are difficult to color match, but if you get something darker, like charcoal, it's difficult to find something that looks bad.

Stay away from bronze/gold! IMHO White is also a no no color.

A tip, use blue lugs with the gunmetal or graphite colors. Should give it that extra pop

I wonder why everyone is saying avoid bronze, I know this is a terrible picture and my car is quite dirty though
