1. Silver
2. Gold/Bronze
3. Flat/Matte Black or Grey.

Personally I love gold...I know, I know...it's the total Subaru WRX rip off...but I personally think it looks great on Montego Blue.

There was a thread of another Montego Blue + wheels a few months back...try doing a search.

I like the gunmetal. Won't look too bad with brake dust on them.

I like the standard silver or gunmetal. Here is a recent pic of one of our customers with the silver/gunmetal combo. I think a lighter color contrast works well on montego.

bro i really don't think u can go wrong with any color of rims on a monaco. All can go well and look good.

gold/black/brushed/gunmetal

id personally throw some brushed wheels with a polished lip on there. Can never go wrong with that. Something high class tho HRE or DPE.

+1 on the brushed or highly polished. The contrast really does wonders for the car. Hartge Replicas have looked great on Montego Blue. Check out this thread -

any shade of silver is always going to look best on Montego, imo - there's a few wheels out there that look pretty good (someone has a set of hyper gunmetal Iforged Daytonas that look really good on his Montego coupe), but for the most part, silver is the ticket...

I love the Silver CSL rims on the Montego Sedan. I think that'll be the only thing I do to mine when it comes in.

As long as you don't go with red anodized JLine wheels the car should look good.
