what color should i paint my volk te-37's?

hey guys. im torn at this point. i really had my heart set on time attacking these wheels but soooo many people have that style now that its probably gonna take away from these volks. SO lets see what a better color might be.

I have a san marino red 2000 coupe. volk has mag blue wheels. would red in that same type of finish look good? And if so how would i get a shop to make the correct paint. i would be interested in the mag blue finish with that sparkle and everything except in red if that makes sense.

Or please give me your suggestion. im open to any and all ideas. volk black flat black gloss black etc etc.

current status: bronze. not a very well powdercoat by the last owner but rideable. and heres an accord with basically the same wheels. its literally identical to my accord hahaah

current state:



how they would look if i redid em in the same color:









heres what i want these volks to maybe look like:

Go with the black ones then. I think they'd be nice but if you are unsure you can't go wrong with black.

If you're taking resale value into consideration, then I'd recommend bronze...those seem to be the most desired.

bronze or black.

Off topic, but I think your headlights would look better with the amber strip.

white te's will be KILLIN it.... i used to hate white rims, but grown to like them esp monoblock volks like the ce and te's. the te's especially look good in white.

and powdercoat, don't paint.
