If you want them to pop, yellow. I have an IBM and was looking at a copper color.

I agree with floppy. Something like a golden yellow. Not bright yellow

yup...I'm leaning towards doing a lighter blue, like "jetstream blue".

BUT, w/ the OP's black wheels, I think a color that "pops" more light an orange or copper would look cool. If you want something that stands out less, how about silver?

I have an IBM w/black wheels and have been thinking about doing the gold color that you see on the CTSV. I think it would look great.

It may have been aftermarket then because the CTSV my coworker drivers is more like a dark metallic yellow which I think looks gold.

I tried to get a spectrum of colors for you to see.

I personally like the blues.
