Gold stock 19s?

I am wanting to get my MB red m3 rims powder-coated, Black is starting to become played out so i am a little unsure on which way to go. I couldnt find any pics with the stock 19s as gold, does anyone happen to know what it would look like? or any color recommendations?

Gold will work if you have a tan interior, otherwise I think it will clash. I think a gunmetal or hypersilver type color will go well with red. I hate black wheels. You cant see the wheel design. Black wheels IMO necessitate big rotors and silver calipers to provide a good contrasting backdrop so you can see the wheels.

I second you on the gunmetal, maybe the inside color of the stock wheel, that grey
