tirerack.com is a pretty good place to start. And you can do a "view on vehicle" that shows the wheels and the color of your car. That's where I started when I bought new wheels and tires 2 summers ago.......

I think it depends on the rim. if you go with something black, then I would find something with a machined surface or some kind of lighter color as well, to help tie the wheel back into the car color.

I like the look of chrome wheels on a light colored vehicle.



Mel's SS is a good example of a white/chrome combo.

I guess it depends what you want the car to say. Chrome = refined elegant or Black = dark, potentially sinister How do you view your car?
