Blacks obvious, I know! I was going to say a dark grey or a gun metal.

With white you can have any colour and it will go, but for me Im not keen on the bright coloured wheels.

what about white? Or a pale colour. Cream or something. What are you doing your interior in?

The Audi nimbus grey is nice on wheels but I would plumb for gloss or satin black with white

I seen a white Beemer X5, with 22" aftermarket deep dish alloys with the rims colour matched and the spokes painted glossy black, it looked pretty smartT:

ha ha ha!! some one got a bit carried away i think ! im not limited on colour choice yet as the van is pretty much a blank canvas ??? apart from being done in vw candy white next week ?? the wheels going on are kahn rsc 20 inch if that helps ?? like the idea of audi grey but maybe in a matt finish ??? but alwats like to be a bit different hence the bright colour ???? what a head ache !! thought orange would look good against the white with a few subtle orange touches here and there ??? oh forgot to mention van is being fitted with air suspension feb 17 th !!!!!

I think orange looks cool:cool:, but i've just fitted anthracite shiny wheels with very blue centre caps T:(when they need a refurb they might change colour-pale blue?) I would post a pic, but it's rather wet outside at the moment!
Happy new year!!!!:D
