I was kinda thinking something along the lines of dark titanium or a light anthracite but can't seem to find any pics...the black, chrome, silver just doesn't really stand out very much in my opinion...I'm thinking I'm probably just gonna go flat black..

You may also want to consider that certain places only do basic color powder coating and when you want a different color like yellows, red or anything beyond black and white you generally have to wait till there is a large order. Some smaller places tend to not fire up the whole process for just 4 rims. Check with your local PC:cheers

I know a local shop that will do any color for any part any anytime. They do great work. I think 17" wheels start around $75 each. Most shops I looked at were aroudn that ball park price too.

As far as color, PC can do anything from a flat color to what looks like chrome. A buddy of mine's STi had a purple chrome that looked great with his black car. Personally, I like the idea of black chrome on the GTO... especially if you get your exhaust tips to match and black the rest of the car out.

i ended up deciding on a 20% gloss black, basically a satin finish...local powdercoater's doin it for $65/wheel...still not sure about it but I couldn't find another color that I though would look alright. Besides, you can't go wrong with basic black.
