Martin,

it will depend on the head lights. pdls will look good with platinum or satin silver. black LED with full batman package.

I vote for pdls hence silver wheels or platinum wheels

I had the same issue on wheel color. After chasing my mind I ordered black. My SA talked me into ordering the carbon fiber mirrors to go with the other black accents. I am having trouble deciding what color to paint the roll bar. I ordered grey belts. I am leaning toward silver for the roll. I also ordered Miami Blue.

With MB you will need to go black wheels. The more black accents with MB the better

100% agree. I think the bright / light colors (miami, yellow, white, silver, etc.) go better with black and the darker / deeper colors (black, carmine, agate) go better with silver or platinum. The contrast helps IMO. The two colors I find that looks good in platinum or black are sapphire and guards.

I have had this same question for a very long time. If you do get silver/satin, I think the PDLS matches it better.

you like the Miami Blue belts with the sport buckets?
I'm leaning more towards red belts to match the red calipers and red steering wheel stripe. But painting the calipers Miami Blue with the blue belts would be interesting....hmmmm

Yeah, the Voodoo Blue RS that I bought has black wheels and it looks good and matches the other black pieces on the car while making it look sinister. I did have silver wheels on my Sapphire GT3 and it looked sharp....might come down to a coin flip for me.

That would look sweet. White, silver or chalk with blue belts and blue calipers could look really nice as well. That's what I'm considering if I don't go with GR.

Go with the black wheels for some contrast. Amazing how much better the red calipers look, matching the rear lights and reflectors.

Agree. My RS is GT Silver with black wheels, steels. Looks stunning. I would have done this again on my GT3.2 order if I wasn't planning on keeping my RS. You won't be disappointed.

I'm going to have to say platinum. I think I like a bit more contrast between the wheel and the tire.

Platinum can be tricky with some car colors IMO. My dealer had a GR with Platinum and I thought black or silver looked better. But all this is strokes for folks.
