My Ride: IR M3 Vert.
Rebuilding wheels. Need opinions.

So I'm rebuilding my DPE S20s.
Gonna widen them for figment on a imola red M3 vert.
I'm leaning heavily towards white centers. Chrome lips, and gloss black inner barrels.
They currently have a brushed alu finish and chrome lips.

So just wondering what you guys think.
Don't say black or gunmetal centers. I'm not a fan of dark wheels. I think they're overdone.

This is what I'm working with. The pic of them "assembled" is a mock up of how they may look as far as lips. You can see how they looked on my sedan with 19x10/8.5 with 4" and 1" lips respectively.
Rears will be 19x11.5 with a 5" lip.
Fronts will be 19x9.5 with a 3" lip. BUT if i go with new front centers i may go with 4" front lips on 19x10s.
Not trying to go super stanced and stuff this time around. I kinda like not worrying about bending lips and stretching tires are the moment. So there.

Should I keep the brushed centers or go white?
