I would do the gun metal as long as the stripe is the exact same color. It wouldn't look good if the wheels and the stripe clash with each other.

If you're painting the car black I would go with black centers and the titanium bolts. If you paint it blue I would do the gray centers. Here is a pic of my wheels. Matte Blk center/Brushed nickle outer/ti bolts/red stripe...

black car with black centers.

The black centers will look great with the contrasting rivets in my opinion.

Holy smokes---the post was three years old boys----was it revived by the original poster? Man, talk about taking his time to choose the right color combo and wheel selection---I thought I was a patient man--

Have you considered a gold or bronze center, looks great on a dark blue or black car. Plus it is more unique than the common black or grey centers.

This thread was started in 2006. I am going to take a wild guess and say the paint choice has been made by now.
