Too brite of an orange. It can be pulled off (IMHO) but not like that on a black subie.

agreed. thats looks like ricey trash. but, its your car dude, so you should do it according to your style. however, if you have those rims, be prepared to be hated on and get extra attention from the cops.

I say if you're looking for a bright wheel color, gold is the way to go. Gold wheels on a black car makes me drool.

U will get some really weird looks. I painted my prims on my vw and people are like wtf. If u did i would go a lil darker and get some other orange accents on your car.

AAAUUGGGHHH MY EYES!!!

In all seriousness, I'd look for something a little less Krylon "Traffic Cone Orange", black cars can look good with bright wheels, it's just difficult to get any unique color worked out. I once saw some burnt-orange chrome on a harley with a black tank/fenders/battery cover, and it was definately unique and sweet to my eye...

No worries dude. Back to the wheels..I already said no bueno... Black and gold looks sweet IMO but there is a lot of that out there. Its hard to be original and look good these days. I've contemplated painting/powder coating my BBS's but I kinda like the stock look right now.
