I'm going to pitch the head turner here... Electric Pink!

everyone will notice you then...

On a slightly more serious note, the grey probably would look good with a darker colour that is slightly paler than its heavy shade.

Something like graphite would look good, otherwise, why not carbon wrapping?

Stoney, one thing you need to know about me, I do crazy stuff, cos its kool and its a laugh! dont have the money to do my own car though! lol, even then, big question as to whether I would actually go pink myself, but hey, could be a larf!

Paul, you would need to buy a wrap of the carbon, and then you would need to take the wheel off. You could then cut out a template of the wheel then just apply heat and flatten the wrap against the wheel. just make sure you dont lose the gaps for the nuts, and I dont know how well it would go, but I think the price of carbon wrap vs painting your wheels, youl have more fun / swear words than wasted money! lol
