Check all the angles of the car. One rim is white, one is blue, and two are rust.

I think the white one looks a lot like a boat trailer tire. Not so bad though. The best suggestion I have heard so far is to paint them a metallic graphite color.

Something that would match the color of the lettering on the back of the car could look really nice.
