White wheels are a pain to keep clean, our brake pads are not friendly.

true....my wheels are already gunmetal due to brake pads. thinking of first plastidipping them white to see if they come out ok.....if they look good, i will peel and powder coat.

if they look like shit i will just peel LOL.

i had mag blue volks on my evo - maybe i can revive them but i've already seen some cars with the blue wheels .... i did the blue wheel thing 7 years ago.

Eh, I think you can do better than white. If anything, I'd much rather see dark blue ZCP's.

If I didn't like gloss black so much I'd be tempted. I'm sure you were the peer pressure kid in your group of friends that got everyone in trouble.

Agree 100%. Maybe white if it's within a deep dish 2 or 3 piece wheel with a silver lip.

It looks great. Last year I had Magnesium Blue CE28s on my Jerez Black M3 and IMO that is one of the best color combos.
