    What do you guys like on SWP?

    I've been thinking about wheels for my new '13 SWP hatch. So I want to put it out there to you guys, what color do you think looks best? I'm not a fan of white, because the car isn't white, really. And black kinda makes the car look like it doesn't have any special wheels at all. So if we eliminate those, what do you guys like for that? Keep in mind I'm a grown up so neons and dayglo's are out.

    Thanks!

    On silver I like a darker color (but not black), like gunmetal.

    +1 for gunmetal or a dark bronze looks alright. Dark blue could work too, just gotta pick the right shade and hue or it'll definitely look ricey.

    FYI, that's Satin White Pearl.. I like the idea of gunmetal or a dark bronze too. Kinda interested in the dark blue idea. You have a link to something specific, Gregroot?

    Haha.. yeah, satin white pearl, okay. Same goes as for silver for me.. they're both light neutral colors, and you're right, it isn't really white. If it was a real bright white color then that would be different.

    Lol, not that I can remember. The wife was talking about it one day, guess that's what she wants to do if she gets a white car, but she wants a blue closer to WRB. Too bright for me though. I'm sure someone could photoshop some different shades of blue on your rims. Or different rims. I'd do it, but it would be done in MS Paint, and you wouldn't see the rims, just a blue circle.

    Well damn, the wife might be onto something. For once. The blue doesn't look half bad. And good cover Bo.

    I'm not a fan of the crazy colors. They look cool for about 5 minutes then just look ridiculous. I'd go with the gunmetal or maybe even the gold.
