I generally like a color matched wheel hoop to the body color, but white doesn't seem to work for me.

I personally love a dark or even black wheel on a white car.

X2 or 3 for yuck... too much white. Rallys look best factory color silver/charcoal on any color car and I think those wider rallys would look great in stock colors for that car.

The 80/81 white pace cars get away with all white wheels but the body has a mix of charcoal or black to help offset it.

When I bought my 1976 Firebird, the wheels were painted blue with the silver spokes to match the car. It looked okay. My wife didn't care for it. When my neighbor came over to see it, he said his sister had a Bluebird back in the day. I painted the rally 2's the original silver and gray the next weekend. It looked better to me. I have since put on 8" snowflakes.

My 2 cents worth is the pictured white needs to match the shade of white the car is painted with. Then I believe leaving the spokes argent and painting the webbed area between the spokes charcoal would give them a more finished factory look.

So basically factory rally II colors with the rim matched to the body color.
