anything pretty much goes with silver IMO. green, blue, yellow, orange, purple. i dont think neon colors would look good but basic colors should make it pop. what are you looking to do?

Start with something easy to paint ( like the front bowtie that unscrews from the grill ) with a color you like and then you can either cover it up or continue with the theme.

Hmmm sounds good. Wish I had normal wheels the previous owner put black wheels with a polished lip. So idk if the colors would go good with that. Also the previous owner did a bad job on the calipers and their red but half red as it's came off some. And the caps on the wing are black which I like. U think like a pearl purple would work?

Would this look good? Not the wheels but the color

Yeah, I like purple but you might get tired of it too quickly. You can't rush a good paint job. You will need to wire brush the calipers or take them off and sand blast them, then spray them immediately with self etching primer then follow directions for wait period drying time then paint caliper and if you're really fussy clear coat.

Black wheels are also a neutral color so should blend in nicely,

Yeah the black wheels will work with anything. You should do a purple.. not that color purple though. It's too aggressive for me.. by that I mean it says "LOOK AT ME!!" Which is a little much lol

These are the rims I've got on mine.

I plan on using the green duplicolor metalcast on the lip, and leaving the center black, then the same on the calipers.
