I'm not feeling the gold thing either - looks a little cheesy.

Neo,

Those wheels look smashing on your black Swift. Its clear now that a multi-spoke (7-8) wheel in this color will look best on your car. If getting that combination is difficult, you could get the base wheels and get them painted/bronzed.

Thank you all for ur comments/suggestions...
But i have pretty much decided on multispoke gold rims..Now finding them in a good finish is a problem..I guess i have no choice but to get them painted..Have to start searching for such a place now..Any idea where i can get such a paint job done in pune/mumbai?

Here's a old fogey that thinks that gold wheels on a black car could look... smart!

For you youngsters only, of course!

And the design would have to be simple, and you'd have to have just about no other decorative feature on the car.

No, wait... you'd have to have any chrome bits gilded too!

Hey that Photoshop job is neat. The alloys do look good on your Swift. The colour of the alloys can be changed to bronze/gold - no rocket science involved - just a good car paint shop. The other option is black with chrome lip (as in my car - refer gallery)

Cheers

I saw a black body kitted swift with golden alloys in gurgaon.
It looked awesome.
