What's people's thoughts on gold wheels on raven blue caddy?

Post by Neilywheely » Tue Mar 08, 2016 10:10 pm

I'm thinking of getting my wheels painted soon. Would like a colour that would stand out but not look cheap or tacky.

With my van being raven blue, I thought gold wheels would maybe look nice. Same sort of colour as on an Impreza.

What's people's opinions on this or think it would look nice? These are the wheels

Leave it alone it looks great as is! I run my own valeting business and work on all manner of cars with refurbished wheels in black, grey etc. Nothing looks as good as clean shiny silver....like the ones you already have[WINKING FACE].
