With the bright white you'll have to work a lil harder to keep your rims clean...but if you can keep the white bright like that all the time. You'll be bling blingin'

Outside of what your choices are: Metallic Gunmetal.




I'm not too fond of the colour changing with the graphite, I'd prefer it to be metallic myself.
