Question what color to paint my style 95s?

So here's a couple of pics of the ride and wheels.







now the question is, i am itching to paint them..i was thinking copper to match a little with the saddle brown interior or any other "exotic" color...what do you suggest? feel free to mention other colors non mentioned above and to even post example pics or Photoshop the color on there.

Very nice looking car. I wouldn't do anything to those wheels.At least don't paint them to black.The wheel design will disappears with black. Maybe you have already seen these but here is copper and tiffany blue style 95.

Paint them the same blue as the roundel. At least that's what I'd thought about doing, along with the same color Berliner racing stripes.

Plastidip with paint on top does not work the same at all. It makes the layers just chip off and not peel. I thought the same and bought a set with this done and ended up stripping and sanding them down. You can do some research and many others have had the same issue.

Tiffany blue/grabber blue looks awesome on the black.

They contrast your paint nicely right now. I wouldn't paint them at all!

I would not try that I'm pretty sure it's the same effect as clear coat would give on plasti dip and will be really annoying to take of since it will chip in small parts instead of fully pealing off. But at least you can still remove it

Normally I'm all for the murdered look but with those rims I like the original color D:

You can always plasti dip them whatever colour you want if you don't want to powder coat or paint them. Then if you change your mind, just peel it off.
