18" Wheels OEM

Was wondering what you guys thought looks best with the factory 18" wheels? Plan to use them for winter tires this winter, but still want the car to look good. Then buy some really sharp wheel this spring.

If you mean what colour paint works well with the dark 18"s I'd (and did!) go for Space Grey..... eg.

Sorry guys, yes I meant what color looks best with the wheels. Right now I am stuck on Jarez Black. Really having a hard time with the color scheme thing. Sometimes I want Silverstone, sometimes White, or the Red. I still have several weeks to lock it in.

I think the 18's are pretty nice but i have bought a set of 19's off another member and will be selling my 18's. I just love the 19's much more. As for colors, I love the 18's with white or melbourne red.
