what color rims should i go with?

I have an 08 Space Gray M and have been thinking about what colors would look good/different on the M. I kinda wanna be a bit different and move away from the usually safe colors on a space gray M such as the bronze or gold.

I was interested in the forgestar CF5V rims and the VMR 713's and I saw some interesting colors in the vmrs. The royal purple with some burnt ti lugs I was thinkinng would look kinda cool and different. Or something evil looking such as a deep red.

What do you guys think?

Trunk, lip and diffuser would complete the look while the exhaust would complete the sound!!

Why do people refer to "wheels" as "rims"? The rim is only part of the wheel. It would be like refering to "tires" as "treads".

Why are you always worried about other people? Bored? Lonely?
