My friend has black wheels for his 05 grey silver and it looks pretty good.

I don't know how white wheels would look but i like them because they tend to stand out but maybe not a good choice with your paint job.

I don't like black wheels. Black wheels were started because people couldn't afford wheels so they painted their stockers or whatever wheels they had black.



Now my reason is because, on a black wheel you can't see any detail. No detail what so ever. When you add wheels to your car you want the attention. If not then just stick to stock. The reason most people add wheels to their rides is the bling factor, very few add them for performance reasons, IE lighter materials, larger wheel smaller sidewall, stronger!!!

just my opinion

Not sure why i think this, but on silver wrx wagons aftermarket rims look funny.

I'd paint it another color. JBP! (or OBP)

Edit: Yellow is pretty snazzy too.

IMO, black wheels will look f0cking hott on a CGM/PSM WRX, which is why i'm going to paint the stockers black.

IMO, silver and gold dont match, they are too different.

What color is your WRX? You say Gray Silver but that doesnt mean anything. Is it Crystal Gray Metallic or Steel Gray? They are very different.

HornyTubro has a Steel Gray 06 Wagon w/ rims that are almost a perfect match. They look great.

Black rims/ polished lip match silver well b/c they are both plain colors but the rims dont detract from the color of the car.

Steel Silver/Steel Silver that match look good b/c they have a gray/gold metallic hue and it looks like he found rims that match perfectly.

Silver/Gold are so different, and dont match at all that it just looks odd. The rims draw your attention more than the Car itself. It doesnt flow in my opinion.

Unless the black wheel has few and far between spokes, there's no reason to put them on. You wont be able to see them! And that's one of the points of installing wheels. It's the look factor.

I have been looking at rims for my car, 06 SGM, and I am in love with the Rota Tarmac 3's in Full Royal Sport Bronze. I don't know if it's the pics they have on SubyDude or what, but that color looks like pure sex.

Best color rims on WRB, nothing too flashy please, but I don't like the stock dark grey/black rims they look dirty to me.
