The standard wheels are the nuts. I'd go with a white wrap, it has been done, but damn it looks good! Cost a little more than a change of wheel colour though!

White alloys look awful on a Focus RS. Anthracite of black is 10000x better.

Had a little play on sumo paint, not perfect but a rough idea to some 'differant' ideas to the common colours

Bright alloys look even worse

You could always just leave it alone and not worry so much about who's car stands out the most. Does being different really matter?

Think white alloys on an FRS look the biz. Everyone has anthracite or black wheels nowadays, when the wheels are turning they always remind me of when cars had hub caps and when you lost one all you had was a shitty black steel wheel.
