OK, so here's the deal... I am sending stuff off to the powder coater soon, and I can save some money on my rims if I send everything now...

The Rims are 7th Gen Celica GTS rims

The car is going to be a Very dark grey metalic near gunmetal. color. Similar to this hue with less metalic:

So, should I go with a bright silver rim similar to factory?
Should I go with a Grey Hue (slightly darker, or brighter than the body paint?
Or should I go mad black yo? Perhaps with a metalic flake in it?

What do y'all think?

PS.... do you know of any center caps that are interchangable with the "cone" GTS center caps?

2" BBS caps. Some carry a factory logo, like Toyota. Most are a sticker over a flat dome though.

I vote a subdued but glossy DARK gray, almost black. Let me look around and see if I can find some pictures to match what I am thinking.

So, you're voting the same color as the car... LOL

Nope, a tad bit darker but more glossy/metallic.

I think black would look great in contrast with the color of the car.

I must be in the minority... I say bright silver.

Black or Silver, if the car was going to be black, then I'd say gun metal... but I'm biased...

I don't see any "rims" in that pic, but I do see a nice 7th gen gts WHEEL.

OK, well it seems that there is no consensus... so I am going to go with a Silver... should it be a straight silver paint, or should I put a metalic flake in the silver?
