    Oooh...brave man wanting white...
    Personally I'd go for dark silver/anthracite - dark enough to go with the paint, but not black enough to be 'lost'

    Do you have the multispoke Sxi wheels or the older 6 spoke types ?

    black on black dude, slow black and low, its the way forward, looks aggressive as hell.
    i'll be buying the multispoke ones, getting either gloss or matt black.
    i'd consider a white pinstripe around the outter rim to make them stand out abit and stop them being 'lost', black wheels always appear smaller then normal and the white would give the wheels a hard outline.
