Default R.S. 9.0 wheels

Hey guys, I just traded my 11 XB in for the RS 9.0. It's getting the front and rear swaybars, springs, exhaust and spoiler put on right now, all TrD parts. I can't figure out what wheels to go with. Either 19's or 20's and as far as style I like a lot of spokes but I don't want chrome and I'm afraid black won't stand out enough with the hot lava color. I'm thinking maybe white but I'm so indecisive. Any suggestions?

Something satin grey would work well. Personally, I feel black wheels get lost in the wheel well.
Something like a BBS LM replica would look really nice. Varrstoen makes some nice replicas at decent prices.

I don't really like the blue lip, seems to be the only part of the wheel that stands out. And the BBS wheels have a lip, also something I don't care for. I like the white Tenzo but can't figure out if 19's or 20's would be cleaner looking

19s, 20s look too big on the xB, IMO.

alot of people dont like the blue lip, i went that way for difference, xxr has some other cool wheels too. The white def looks good on them, I looked at some rota wheels that were solid white, cant remember the name of them
