What COLOR of wheels are you running?

With all the talk of wheels & colors of wheels, it got me thinking, how many out there will be running after market wheels & I wonder what colors will be most popular...So, I decided to check & see....

My question is what COLOR wheels will you be running on your Genesis? OR will you just leave the stock wheels on as is, which is fine since they are a good looking wheel in their own right.

I personally love the stock track wheels and probably won't be changing them out for quite some time. I am working on some spacers to get them flush with the fender lines at this point and plan to change out the factory rubber but other than that I'm a happy camper. I've considered powercoating/painting the factory wheels a darker gray/dark metallic gray but once again, I'm pretty happy overall with the factory look of the 19" wheels.

I voted gunmetal altho I am most likely not going to change the factory 19's unless the local streets get flooded with them. If I do go to an aftermarket it will most likely be this color.

i have already started looking in to what it will cost me to have the stock rims powder coated.
I'm planning to do that over the winter when i have the winter rims on. I'll run the stock rims next summer and then the year after that pick up some nice aftermarket rims. Those will also be gunmetal, but they will likely have a polished or chrome lip.
If i can afford new rims next year i might do it though. the stock rims are quite heavy. you should be able to trim 20lbs off the car easily, 30 if you drop to 18"s

Theres nothing sexier to me than a black car on bronze rims. Thats my choice when I get mine.

Stock wheels for the track trim don't need to be changed. Anyone that does is crazy, unless they are ultra-performance minded and want as little weight as possible. The stocks are sexy as hell.

I agree and don't really want to change the wheels. Maybe add spacers to get the wheels flush with the fenders. Now all this may change if I start seeing track versions popping up everywhere. But so far I have only seen 1 in town and that was this morning and it had a Florida tag on it so I don't think it's local. It looks like I'll have some time before I have to consider a wheel change. The first one I have seen just happened to be the exact same as mine...black 3.8 Track...lol
