Gold wheels on white car???

I need to repainting my wheels, they are stained with brake dust and 25 years old. I thought I would try the color gold because I've seen other white cars that I thought looked great with gold wheels.

So I did one last night in gold. What do you think? I think it doesn't look good, but my GF thinks it looks awesome and I'm on crack of I don't like it. Time for a vote, what do you think? Stay white? Or go for Gold?

Thanks!

Gold would look good if it can be broken up with black and or white to compliment the car's color scheme.

Not into the gold or white. Something chrome or polished aluminum. But you have to live with her...the girlfriend and the car.

I think the gold looks good, but I don't think it will last. I like the monochromatic scheme it left the factory with, but if you want something different maybe you should try a Partridge Family tour bus kind of paint scheme.

Bronze over good because race car. Use plastidip and go with whatever color you want. Dark blue would look neat imo.

body colour looks right for these cars;
that being said gold would look nice if there was some gold accents to make it blend in.

slap on some gold trim strips that are often sold locally at your chain parts stores or in the supermarket that has the gold mine of a car care section. Complement the trim by making the wheels to the same shade of gold!

I have white factory wheels on my GTZ and I am friggin' sick of them.
Brake dust and they are always dirty.
Just bought a set of GTU/Indy wheels which are going to be polished and replace the stockers (although I will keep the stockers for posterity).
But gold? Who knows until you try it.
Hurst made everything white and gold look pretty good.
Just keep the little lip polished. It makes a big difference.

As a test look, you might consider slapping on a vinyl/decal to gauge the look of how a permanent color might look. ???
