I'd say keep em blue! It's just your "winter" set anyway!
I do think the blue would look pretty sweet on your car!

gloss black. Generic I know but the paint is already flashy. If you add a flashy wheel color it could look as if you are trying to hard...just my 2 cents

Or mag blue but the problem is the blue doesn't really match your car's black accents.

Bronze, gold, or a graphite/gloss charcoal finish could look very cool. Gold would be the most extroverted, bronze a bit less, and gloss charcoal the least, so part of it depends on the type of attention you want to attract with this setup.

+1. Dakar Yellow bring tons of attention, and I think that GB or a neutral dark color in general (grey, charcoal, etc) would compliment the car the best. Mag Blue seems a tad bit out of place, but damn that color is dreamy . I would say white would be my second choice based on that survey

If I had to go with any other color that I wouldn't consider a "standard" color, I would lean towards the colors Ilia is suggesting.

I say polished or brushed.. no te37 owners are doing that. I agree with others saying DY is already an amazing color, so adding colored wheels that aren't a neutral color would be doing too much. So brushed or polished would be totally different and eye catching while your DY paint will still be a focal point.
