7 Best Color Rims For A Silver Car (w/ Pictures)

If the color of your car is silver, it is something associated with meanings of elegance, poise, and sophistication.

The color silver itself hides dirt and scratches quite well and is a practical choice. Now, if you drive silver wheels, you’re probably confident yet reserved. This color is not too flashy and is not an introverted color either.

Another good thing about this color is that it’s safe. You can combine and match it easily with any color, especially if you want to replace the rims with aftermarket ones. There are many colors to choose from that will match your silver-colored car.

So, What rim colors go well with a silver car?

If you own an elegant silver car, focus on colors such as Gunmetal Gray, Gold, Bronze, and Black. Black rims for a silver car could be very interesting, and remember that the tires have visual significance. If the tires are inappropriate, they will not look good in a silver car with alloy-colored rims.

Each color gives a different impression. This article provides some recommendations that I firmly believe will best match your silver car. I also include the details for each color.

Before we proceed to the list of colors, I want to let you know that I own a silver car, and the colors below are the best choices based on my experience.

This is the easiest and safest color option. You will never regret choosing black-colored rims for your silver car. It strongly contrasts a vehicle and makes your car look more elegant and rugged. You may also paint the brake caliper light to make your wheels stand out even more.

Glossy or Doff?

Well, it depends on each person’s preference, but you should generally look at your car type first because each car has its character.

For example, a rugged SUV will look cooler with matte black rims, while a luxury sedan will look more elegant with shiny black.

Gunmetal Gray

If you choose this color, it will make your silver car look more modern. This color is associated with modern technology. That’s why there’s no wonder this color gained quite a bit of popularity in the past few years. A sedan or coupe type of car goes well with gunmetal gray rims.

This color has shades from something mint green to turquoise, and it may sound crazy to use it in a silver car, but the truth is, this combination works well. However, not all types of cars can be good with this color combination. A hatchback such as Mazda 3, Hyundai Veloster, VW GTi, and WRX Sti would definitely look very cool with these Tiffany Blue rims.

Two Tone Rims

Two-tone rims can be an alternative if you want something different. If most rims or wheels are one color, you can try using two colors.

Especially for silver cars, the most commonly used color combination is black and chrome. This combination presents a dynamic, elegant, and modern impression.

Other rim colors that look good on silver cars besides black and chrome are black-red, black-gold, and black-orange.

In my experience, a sports sedan looks impressive with two-tone black and gold rims.


Wrapping Out

Silver is a classic color for a car. This color has been popular since the beginning of the automobile industry.

To make a silver car more attractive and personalized, owners often replace the wheels with models and colors they prefer.

There is no rule of thumb for what color you should choose for your wheels; it all depends on personal preference. However, choosing the wrong color can result in an unattractive color combination.

Silver cars pair very well with bronze, gunmetal gray, black, or silver wheels. On the other hand, wheels in overly bright colors (neon green, red, yellow) are not recommended because they can make the car’s appearance too flashy.
