I like silver myself.

But go with your gut after all things considered here.

Whatever you decide will be the right decision.

Put em on silver and ride for a while.

Its free easy and will help you decide what color to go with in the end.

I say you should go with chrome, cuz I love mine. If that would cost too much, then I would say black and if you want gold/bronze then you could paint the lug nuts.

This is an excellent conpromise!
Keeping the bronze but toning it down to lug nuts on a black wheel!
Sexy.

You got a nice set of rims. If you really want them another color I'd get them professionally powder coated. Lasts longer, looks better. it's a lot of work to be redoing every year (depending on where you live and how much you drive).

First off you need to go to the dollar store and buy ScrubbinBubbles. That will take off 99.9% of the brake dust, any grime and everything else off. It's my little secret
