Which of these wheel colors look best on a WRB BRZ?



Which TWS T66-F color looks best on this WRB BRZ with black aero (ignore the XXR wheels currently on it):


Attached are pics collected all over the internet. Things to note:

I prefer gold but the only thing stopping me is the Flat Gold finish might look cheap in person. The other two colors have a gloss finish.

Gloss Gunmetal seems to be the most popular color on WRB.

I see what you're sayin about gold...you prefer it, but afraid it might look cheap. If I were color coordinating my car, I'd look for that 3rd offset color. The vision for my car would be red/black/silver...or "chrome".

For yours, I see WRB/black aero /silver wheels. With gunmetal, I think your car presents a mildly dark look, but with silver, I think it defines the car better.

Andrew I personally say stick with gold.

Think going dark again will take away from your car. I could also see you pull off silver. It'll help highlight those small accents of silver/chrome you have.

Silver.

Gold is cool, but my hispanic friends would just say "What are you doing? You're white??"

Honestly though, if you want attention then go gold. If you want subtle and good looking, silver. If you want to hide the details of the wheel, then gunmetal.

I agree with Omar.I'd stick with gold I almost think it'd be weird to see your car back in the black stis now.

Edit: It's also noted toward the bottom of the page if you run it thru Google Translate.

No desire to powder coat your wheels the gold you want?

I see more value in keeping the paint original especially on more expensive wheels. :3
