Before I went Sapphire Blue, I was all set on GT silver with wheels painted in GT silver. IMO, the stock silver wheels clashed a bit with the GT silver of the car. Clashed may be too harsh....but I could definitely see a difference and it didn't sit right with me. (I'm probably a little OCD over this, however...I was also frustrated with the different silvers/aluminums on the interior)

I think the GTS looks fantastic silver on silver with all the black accents. But check the box to match the paint, not the stock silver color.

GT silver wheels on a GT silver car is hard to beat. Definitely would consider copper, bronze, or gold on aftermarket wheels.

Here's another variation not seen in the long list above, but I don't know if they are available as centerlocks. The black paint on these was an additional cost... they normally come with gray spokes.

This is my car in GT Silver. It's the first time I've gone with "black:" wheels, but I thought the silver edging made them work for me since I don't prefer the totally black look. (And just a brief note about the dark tint that came on the car.... it was 15% but I've since changed it to 35%.... this was just tooooo dark).

I agree with GT silver wheels. Different silvers would drive me crazy too. GT silver is amazing but after you hit the brakes once the wheels will be dirty............

^^^platinum satin is a great compromise. Hides some brake dust and kind of tones down the glitz. My car (in the post above) was bought off the lot, and I would have been fine with the silver wheels too.
