I like white wheels on dark blue cars, black would look ok though

Re: black alloys on new orleans blue gp?

At the end of the day it comes down to your personal choice, and its probably more the design of the wheel that is going to make it suit or not rather than the colour, personally id probably not go black on a dark blue car, if you want something other than silver maybe an anthracite would provide a better contrast??

Re: black alloys on new orleans blue gp?

I'd probs say black, but thats whats on my car! Maybe white might go quite nice, or yet again as matt and tris said go with antracite?
