What color to powdercoat my wheels

I have a blue 02 r6, trying to powdercoat my wheels just can't decide on the color. White, highlighter yello or a polished gold.. What you guys think?

Any Hi-vis color is always a plus.
Only downside is they show dirt and grease a lot more than dark colors.
I had a R1 that we painted the hub and spokes the same color blue as the bike and kept the dish black. Looked pretty good.

I'd vote highlighter yellow, and do a Yamaha blocky stripe graphic in a corresponding yellow, like this (pic to indicate pattern only, not colors):
