I'm not a huge fan of grabbing the attention of every motorist around me as I'm young and I like to lay low and stick to the speed limit for insurance purposes, haha.
lol ya i hear ya man, I personally liked the white look, It def got alot of looks, Id say dnt go gunmetal, I love the look of either white or silver, as long as it doesnt look too stock, as in silver wheels with a lip or something, theres a good medium between too modded and stock. and personally im starting to hate the blacked out look of my car now. time to change it up.

Yeah I wanted gunmetal or black when I got my wheels but found an offer on mine that I couldn't pass up. I'm glad I didn't end up with black wheels now. I'm thinking something that is 3 piece and has a polished lip with brushed centers or something would look good.

Wow, thank you! White definitely looks good enough for me to at least give it a shot with plastidip. Is that seafoam green or is there a different name for that? I'm really liking that color too, as weird as it feels to say that. Haha

white wheels were a childhood fantasy of mine
when I found out about plasti-dip, I went ahead and tried it out
I loved it! but i'm super biased

Yeah I say plastidip.
Always the safest route unless you can photoshop them to see how'd they look
