Need your opinon...black rims on a white compasd

I have an 07 compass sport with stock silver 17in wheels. My car is white, thinking about painting the wheels black. What do you think? Would it look good? Anybody seen this color combo on a compass? I painted my old Dakota's wheels black, so.I know how to paint them. Just need some thoughts on it. Thanks

I'd say go for it. I would also consider charcoal or keep some of the outline silver, like the darker OEM version

I can do some photoshop mock-ups next week once I'm back at work if you like...

Use plasti-dip. U will get the black but can remove it to go back to stock if u don't like it or want to trade.

Some quick mock-ups; original silver, grey, black, titanium patriot style. I'd go black I think... and add a bug shield.

I looked into the plasti dip, that stuff is cool. I am going with the plasti dip. Then I am going to do all the emblems too.

My only concern with the plasti dip is that live in the country's hottest city Yuma, AZ, it.gets up to 120 in the summer
