EBP Prelude Wheel Color?

I own a 99 prelude sh that is getting repainted this week and I currently have gunmetal grey wheels on it, but since it is being repainted EBP I wanted some opinions, should I keep my wheels gunmetal or have them powder coated white?

white wheels are played out IMO especially since you'll have to clean them quite often from all the brake dust.

Better brakes = less dust

I have a EBP with stock wheels. I recently painted them flat black and it looks amazing. Get Back to Black for the trim and some window tint as well.

I agree with thegamettt, Gold rims are the only way to go on a electron blue painted car, it makes both the paint and the wheels pop. With any other color and you're bringing both colors down.

very true, but you know not everyone will be changing out for better brakes. I'm still rocking the good ol Autozone pads after years and years

Better is all relative. If the pads don't dust...you aren't braking aggressively enough. :P

the ones with the life time replacements? My wife has had those for years and they've been fine.
