Should I powdercoat my wheels white???

I've talked with a few friends, and they have me convinced that PC'ing the wheels white would complete the transformation of my bike.

I go back and forth between it being too much, or being exactly what the dr. ordered.

Should I powdercoat my wheels white???

If you were in my shoes, would you PC your wheels to match???

I vote yes, I think the white would make that bike "pop"
Let's see someone photoshop it white as well as the other color suggestions.
