    What color should I paint my rims?

    I just replaced the tires on my RS 6 spokes and I chipped some of the paint. I want to repaint them, but I'm tired of the brownish color. What do you think I should paint them? I don't want a boring color, but nothing too bright (pink, lime green, etc.)

    Here's what they look like on my car. If someone could help me altering the picture with photoshop I would appreciate it.

    <--Not surprised by Torque's response, nor that it was first.

    I have the 5 spoke ones for my winter wheels and the previous owner painted them white. I think it looks pretty good on a blue car. He kept the center caps gold which was a nice touch.
