    polished and clear laquered looks good.

      Having the wheels the same colour as the car will look awful (unless the car is white or silver) IMO. Do you have a picture of the alloys and/or car they'll be fitted to? IIRC Atlantic blue is a dark metallic colour, so I'd say either white or silver depending on the design of the wheels. If the alloys have thick spokes, white will look better, if they have thin spokes then go for silver. Cross-spokes would look better white, but cheesegraters better in silver.

      All IMO of course

        Depending on colour,

        colour coded alloys can look good if, the rim is polished to a high shine (polished alloy)and only the centres match the body.

        I have seen this done on a number of SD1's and other 80's cars.
