Style 95 color choice?

What up fellas, so i may end up keeping these wheels for now, but they do need to be refinished. Or i could powder-coat them a completely different color. I am open to all color choices.. except black. so far im thinking fully polished or white.. anyone with photoshop experience feel free to go ahead and change the color of the wheels.

Thanks for the help

You made a good decision.How about some little darker grey, hyper black or gunmetal? My choice would be hyper silver its little bit more shiny than basic silver.

Like you said. Definitely not black because it makes the concavity of the wheel disappear.

really really light matte gunmetal with some purple metallic specks in it would look badass.

Full polish all the way. If not, then I'd have to go with a lighter matte gunmetal.

do something with alot of flake in it, give em some sparkle, on ur color i would do a gunmetal so theres some contrast, not white as its a paint in the ass and you have a light paint color on the car.
