Arrow Help....what color to Powdercoat Wheels

I just picked up a set of used OEM '10 wheels for free
Thanks Park (Baccocafe)
They are curbed up pretty good so they are at the wheel shop getting repaired.

I want to powdercoat them but I can't decide on the color.
I'm tired of Black so that's out.

Front runner right now is Gunmetal Grey.
Possibly considering really dark red or dark blue. Just to be off the wall and different but probably will get tired of it really quick.

Any suggestions or input are appreciated.

Thanks

Gloss black carbon fiber wrap?

I dunno, it's different and I don't think it'll look that bad

My old boss had a set of carbon fiber wheels on his purple challenger. They looked so good.

I love how early in the post he clearly states black is not an option, and then the only 2 suggestions are black

Gunmetal is always a good choice. I think the dark blue/ red would look tacky but if your balls are big enough I would be interested in seeing that.

Black chrome doesn't look "black". It will give more of a greyish look. It's just tinted chrome.

I think these look pretty good against black. I've been thinking of switching mine up also.

Hmmm, interesting.
I've never seen that color combo on a Jeep before.

I was thinking along the lines of gold/bronze.
