Good question Nick. I have a Laguna Blue '08 with a set of winter tires and enkei wheels. I was thinking of painting the Enkeis black. Although I did see a blue with white wheels that looked cool too. Dunno really?

White wheels?!? You'd have to be crazy.

Black will do. Post pictures so I can see what it looks like. The thought has crossed my mind as well....like, every single time I clean my wheels.

The fight against brake dust is futile!

i put black rims on my 07 LBP. Have tinted windows already. I'm going for kind of a blue/black look.

Am going to replace emblams with black badges. Did front this weekend after getting wheels on and washing up the car. Will do the rest when get time. The trunk is hard to get my fat fingers up under.

I personally would never have white wheels. Seems too hard to keep clean.

No offense meant but, black rims in my not so humble opinion are WAY to played out these days.

I agree with that. My rims now are black with a chrome lip. That might not look bad.

Too over the top for me in my opinion. OP, go with the grey.

One of these days I'm just gonna go with the low-maintenance approach to wheels, and just stop cleaning them. Once in a while, I'll scrub them off and spray them black again.

Don't get me wrong, I'll still take care of the car itself, like the paint, interior, & mechanicals,...but this car is just too fun to drive rather than to spend time cleaning wheels.
