Wheel color choise?

Im gonna have the wheels powder coated while the studded winters are on but cant really decide what color to choose. So far im leaning towards deep/dark copper or black.
Any other suggestions?
Would absoluteley love a demonstration of photoshop skills

My car is the same colour and the wheels are powder coated to match the paint, I think the colour match looks great but colour choices are always down to personal tastes. I will post a pic next time I am at my car.

Wheels (and car) look great just the way they are. Copper could be good as long as you don't go so dark they disappear. Or a gloss gray, but I wouldn't go much darker than the attached picture.

Please don't ruin those wheels by PCing them black. I don't know why people keep doing this.

But that's just, like, my opinion, man.

If you dip or wrap them, you can switch back or swap color down the road. I'd go this way of they were my wheels.

Have to vote against pure black wheels if this is a poll. Dark coloured winters do look nice and contrast with the snow but it seems over done. After a quick google of "grey car bronze wheels" it could look quite good.

I'll just say I hate black wheels, always have. They end up looking like black blobs, most times you can't even see what the wheels look like. Copper for a bit of flash, or a dark grey for subtlety...both would look really good on that car.

Can't go wrong with black wheels but they are very common.

Definitely not black. Bronze/Copper would look killer and more unique, I like the sound of that.
