I'll go with option #2 if the paint is bright yellow, but without seeing the car and wheels together it's tough. I usually prefer the chrome with darker main colors and the reverse, darker rims with brighter main colors.
I've used Photoshop (Gimp, Paint.NET, etc) to mock-up wheels on my cars. Some of the higher-end online rim places have this feature, but they usually stick with newer cars. If you have a profile picture of a car similar to yours and can find a profile pic of the rim.
Post a link to a car like yours and the wheel rim part # and I (or someone else) will mock it up for you.
I gave it a quick 5 minute go. The image of the rims were a bit large so when I resized them smaller, they lost some of their quality. If Google images had a higher res 79 yellow vette, it would have been better. Anywhoooooo..... :huh:
If you can find better images of the rims that are more straight on, that might be better as well. Do you know the product name/number for the rims?
I think the chrome looks really sharp... I may wind up going with torque thrust or something. I kinda liked the matte look at first, I was worried about yellow + chrome being too bright, but I think it looks pretty sharp.
