    I like the rusty horrible colour that they go after a while.... That way they do not detract from the alloy wheel, saves hours cleaning as well

    If you have to, silver is a good choice IMHO

    I would also say silver mate! Looks nice and OEM, not chavy!

    I did my calipers, disc centres and lips and made it look really fresh.
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    also black can look very smart. Clean, understated and simple but also cool...

    try red tho, see what it looks like and u could always go back....

    If you can get hold of photoshop, I think it works wonders for seeing what colours would look best. I have been known to use it when choosing wheels too!

    I did mine in black with shiny new clips and I did the centres in silver.






    There was another thread like this a while ago (I'll see if I can find it) and I thought the right shade of silver or gold looked pretty cool on the right coloured car.
