Deciding wheel color

I've dragged around on deciding what I want to do with my wheels I purchased. The car they are going on is a Galaxy Grey Mazda 3. The wheels are stock Evo X wheels. My original plans were to powdercoat black, annodize lugs orange, and paint caliper orange. I've had second thoughts on that plan though. Any input from pbn on this?
The wheels:

They look fine. If you're that crazy, make em a powder coat matte black finish. But it's not worth it

Plastidip is FANTASTIC. Simple and quick, then you can paint on any color you want to see what you like. Peel off at the end or leave it on.

I plastidipped my oem 7 spokes and they turned out great. Lasted until I finally bought a set of rims that I liked.

A friend of mine used plasti dip on his wheels. It had a really flat finish, I mean, it was an even finish and all, but it didn't look any better than spray paint. They were winter wheels so I don't think he really cared and the snow/salt probably didn't help the finish though.

Thats because it's rubberized. It always has a matte finish to it

Keep the wheels same color for a clean look. Use the oems as winters..

Dont go black unless you have a polish lip cause a all black wheels just looks like a steelie from afar.

I guess you forgot to look at location. I have no need for winter wheels.

I think it did because one of mine got deleted too.

why would you think orange lugs and brake calipers would be cool on a stock, grey mazda? Leaving the wheels as is will look far better than any other color.

What would be considered not stock? My car is not fast and will take a lot of money to be made mildly fast. I have put all the money I am into so called "power" upgrades. Apparently you have to have a highly modified car in order to have some type of accent color?
