Gold wheels look good on what color Forester?

I love the look of gold wheels on a Subaru, and wanted to see what SH owners thought. I'm listing colors I personally like. If you choose "other", please comment on which alternate paint code(s) you think look good with gold wheels.

NOTE: By gold, I mean middle of the road GOLD, not dark bronze, which may affect some people's opinion.

This is my first poll here. It's multiple choice. Feel free to comment on favorites vs. merely "acceptable" colors, too!

Personally I think gold wheels look awesome on paprika red pearl, camelia red pearl, and black. But not so much on other colors. I'm going gold on my camelia red pearl sh.

Right Eileen,

That's understandable. I looked at various pics and really debated as to whether to get chrome/silver, gun metal, gold, or bronze wheels and of all the wheels the gold seemed tip really bring out the shine on the red pearl paint. It really pops!

The color your describing you want your wheels to be sounds like gun metal.

Kind of a grayish black. Like charcoal.

I'm partial to AW/SWP of course, but I think gold looks good on any colors EXCEPT for silver and green. And CRP + goldies= perfect.

McD's is yellow and red not gold and red. 49'ers maybe but not Ronald McDonald.
