I actually like them the way they are. Maybe if I saw a pic of the entire car, but I like the silver.

:)I agree with others, painting bronze or gold would be too much of a distraction. Keep it classy!

I too agree with what others have said.
IMHO, fitting of coloured wheels to an already classy car would 'chav' it up I'm affraid. The car looks right just as it is.

Money burnin' a hole in your pocket? :D

your rims look great the way they are...and gold rims usually only work on blue cars (with sti badges).

I hate coloured rims.

Especially black.

But I did have bronze wheels on a black evo and gold wheels on a blue sti - 22B! (that's like SLK black exclusivity).

They looked right on those cars in that they complimented the chav image, by adding to it.

Your wheels are classic and stylish, doin't ruin them and the car!

Though at the end of the day if bronze or gold wheels makes you happy go for it :)

You're the one driving the car not us :)

I like those wheels. What brand? BBS?

IMHO - In order to make it work the color of the wheels should contrast the color of the vehicle.

I think the visual weigh of a light colored car is not heavy enough to go with dark rims.

In the end it's your sled, so fill your boots!

Leave them silver, it was made that way for a reason-it looks right.

If you need to paint something, paint the wheel centers white:confused:
