Thumbs Up Style 98's as Winter Wheels on a Red Car - What color to paint them?!

So I got these style 98's from my neighbor for cheap, and I'm going to use them for my snow tires. They're not the coolest wheels but they were cheap so whatever.

The paint is flaking off a little bit on them though, so I think I'll paint them before I put the tires on. But I can't decide what color to go with!

I was thinking something like charcoal grey would be good; I used to have a red e30 with charcoal basketweaves and it looked okay. My buddy says white, but I don't know if that would look good on these wheels.

You guys have any ideas and/or pictures of what would look good?

Here's my car:

And here are the wheels:

Here's another wheel picture:

Might want to just go with silver to match your front bumper grille insert????
I think copper would look badass though, Autozone has a two step copper wheel paint.
