my wheels and interior thread help

i like my wheels a lot, 17s are perfect size for me regarding handling and tire price, and i just like the multi-spoke design. now, the previos owner did not take care of them as good as we on this board would so ther is a little discoloration. i would like to get the spoked colored. i just want the centers painted to avoid any kind of chips or anyhtign like that during tire mounting. please help me decide on the color that would suit this car best. also the same goes for interior

this is what it looks like as of now:

and these ar some choices...of cousrse suggestions on other colors are welcomed, these are just photoshops to get ideas.....

I like the brushed aluminuim look you had in your first post. It was actually a little darker then brushed aluminuim but I like the idea.

Black looks really good.

With that wild Jade Green paint on the car, you must be very careful of what color accent your wheels carry. The red ones make the car look like the official Christmas Parade Vehicle. Of course, if you're trying to impress or eventually sell the car to Barbie, paint them pink or that dayglow orange.
