Well good thing for you is that I am asking opinions for my car not yours. And WRX

I see that you're clearly not asking for opinions, but opinions that match your own. Don't ask for opinions if you're going to be shitty to people who's opinions don't match yours. You asked for opinions, I gave mine, had I known that you didn't actually want opinions, I wouldn't have bothered, but when the title of the thread explicitly states that you want opinions, you should be a little more open to the likelihood that not everyone is going to give the opinion that you're looking for.

It is your car, not mine, and given that, why don't you decide for yourself instead of posting a thread asking for other people to make up your mind for you?

Tough to ask for feedback on something that's so subjective (obv).

Think your car looks great.

Personally, I'm not a fan of colored rims. Even when done professionally, they give me a "ricey" kind of vibe. It definitely attracts attention, but I dunno...that's just me.

If I were in your shoes and looking to powdercoat those wheels, I'd go gloss (preferred) or matte black, but as mentioned, I tend to lean towards a more understated look.

Gloss black. Especially on a nice, clean car like yours, that would be killer.

Not a fan of the reds. But, it's YOUR car.

I don't really disagree. Black hides the details too much and just makes it look like a big black hole.

The only color the OP picked that I'm not a fan of is the green. It'd be fairly unique though. You can't go wrong with bronze on white, and I think the red would look good too.
