Default Painting Wheels

So here we go. I Like the look of my OEM wheels without the center caps, but theyre pretty trashed up. I plan on painting them with duplicolor wheel paint and then Duplicolor gloss. However, I Really dont want to paint them black because it would only serve to make my wheels look smaller.

So the question: Duplicolor silver or duplicolor white?
Ive never seen a truck with gloss white wheels and i think it could look pretty BA or pretty gay. Suggestions?

White, that orange is just the right color to go with white rims.
