    Black on black cars, White on bright red cars and dark graphite on any colour car for a different and mote modern look!!
    But that is just my ideas.........
    HID Conversion, M Power numberplate surrounds, Intravee II and Alpine KCA 420i linked to iPod, De badged, clayed, and polished to perfection!

    Post up a picture, and then request that BigBenStrikes takes a look. He's pretty handy with photoshop, so will be able to produce the wheels in a variety of colours for you to choose from!

    I'm afraid I would have to say high power silver would be the most desirable colour on a blue car.

    In my opinion all of the suggestions you have made will go but I think only a minority will vote black or white

    Agree, I have same colour and wouldn't go down the black or white look. Get them sand blasted, new coat of silver (perhaps metallic charcoal) and a good clear coat.

    You ever seen a new BMW with black or white wheels?
