Repainting CE28N's Diamond Blue or Bronze

Hey Guys,
I just picked up a set of CE28N 18x9.5 +28 wheels. They are sitting at the powder coater waiting to be repainted. I've narrowed it down to Diamond Blue (think Volk Mag Blue) or Bronze. They are going on a Wicked White MR. I don't daily drive it but when I do drive it to work (office job) I don't want it to be to flashy. What do you guys think?

Volk Mag Blue:


Bronze:

I ordered a few blue swatches from Prismatic Powders. I like Diamond Blue looks the closest to Mag Blue. I'm waiting on the bronze swatches.

You can get up to 5 swatches mailed to you for free.

I've ordered from prismatic before. Good people and cool that you can order the samples.

I'd go with bronze.

If it's a factory Rays job, I'd vote bronze simply because it's anodized making the finish more resilient (the lip and the spoke are 2 different shades and texture). Painting the wheels bronze usually result in making them look like Rotas.

If you were to paint them I'd go mag blue hands down.
