    Could always try a kind of gunmetal/anthracite mix that is on mine. Unfortunately they are a custom colour done by previous owner and i can't find out what it was. So have to find something close as they are due a refurb shortly.

    anthracite/gunmetal works well on silver cars.
    white can also look good if pulled off well, problem is keeping them clean as dirty white wheels look nasty.
