Default What color rims?

Hey guys I am debating on what color rims I should get. I own a dark green Eclipse GST. I am having the hardest time picking out the color of my rims. I am not sure which rims yet, but I am trying to figure out the color first.
I was actually thinking black with the chrome lip. I am going to purchase black projector headlights and black tailights, and of course black tinted windows. This is the main reason why I want black rims with the chrome lip. I dont really want to get black rims, because TO ME it looks like the hub caps were taken off.
Anyone have any suggestions on what color rims I should get?

Gunmetal w/chrome lip always looked sharp to me.

Hmmm....not really sure a lot of people usually go with gold which I think is retarded. I can't seem to find a site that will let you preview the wheel on your car, can't remember the company that does it, but anyways, best way to do it is to find a place that you can preview the wheels before putting them on/ordering them and see what you think. Ever think about going with just white?

Not sure of your year but green with the Gram Lights 57C (bronze) look pretty tight in my opinion. Also the RO_JA R2-5 look killer if you are still gearing yourself towards black with a chrome lip.

Thank guys, I think I am going to stick with the black rims with the chrome lip because I am going to order black projector headlights, black tailights, black window tint and a carbon fiber hood. I DO NOT just want to get black rims because, (to me) it seems like hub caps. Thats why I want that chrome lip.

Definately go with some bronze rims, they would look really good with dark green.
