Nice calipers btw. However, if you paint your wheels gold, paint the calipers black or gun metal.

I tend to like black on gold...if it wasnt for that silver lip that doesnt seem to match anything.. btw, what side skirts are these? OEM? looks like a perfect fit

I would normally say green only to be different, but gold will look really good on your car!

+1 on the red if you must change the color but I like your color as-is.

Great choice on the wheels, BC wheels are amazing quality. We love the current bronze color you have now, it is classy yet very sporty.

I think the bronze looks better than any of your other options, honestly.

This thread makes me want to buy new wheels. And tint my windows.
