Default Finally got my square set up today WHAT COLOR TO PAINT

hey guys so i finally picked up my square set up today on my IMOLA and its just changed to look completely its a BEAST
so i swapped someone my front 8.5's for his "CHROME" 9.5's so right now im rocking OEM gunmetal rears and chrome fronts .. to be honest i thought chrome was gonna look nasty but right when i put them on i fell in love on how flush it looked...
anywhooo....right now im stuck i dont know which color to paint them i dont want a plain look... and black is kinda played out i need you guys to help me out i wanna go RAW on this one... let me know which color you guys would prefer "RAW" on my imola... white,black,gold,bronze,takata green,orange, thanks

Here are some pics of the front..






sorry for the phone pics.. i was so happy i got my square setup i just snapped some

if you want the "raw" look I might suggest sand blasting them... I think a member did that to his OEM 19's and they looked pretty sick....

if you don't like that I would saw bronze/gold FTW

Orange and green- a little over the top
Black- overdone and a bit ricey
Gold or bronze- I like but kings an sti/rally car vibe
White-looks really clean, but probably hard to keep clean
Sand blasted also an option, Idk how it would look on imola..
