relating back to the classic/retro styling of these cars, I like the "deep dish bullitt" wheels best ; don't have any pics handy right now, maybe later

I just want to see what's popular as I am fairly new to all this.
They had 20 inch Niche Verona Rims in Dark Bronze on my car when I bought it.
I was thinking of putting White rims on it, Kinda the light version of Black on Black,
but not sure how it would look.

I can understand wanting to see what various people had done to their cars as far as wheel choices and colors. I didn't want black on black so that was why I went with dark chrome. They change appearance according to the light

I have had a few people here say do bright chrome as the car has chrome accents inside, but everywhere I look that's all i see on cars is the chrome wheels, I just want to stand out of the pack.

For your car, and you being a girl and all, maybe powder coated wheels that match the stripes?

I generally like black and chrome Bullitt style wheels (reminiscent of the old Cragar SS or American Racing Torque Thrust wheels) but I'm a guy, and your color scheme opens up some more creative options

I did black rims on my silver 2012 mustang and loved it as it had black striping on the doors.

I looked into powder coating the rims I have white and was quoted 100.00 a rim, so not a bad
option. I'm not sure if they could do an exact match to the stripe color though.

I second this. I just received a set in matte charcoal 19x8.5 and 19x9.5. Before that I had a set of the 19x8.5 California special. They were nice, but I got tired of the machined surface and wanted a change, which happened to coincide with needing new tires FYI, the 19x10's are discontinued from American Muscle.

I wasn't thrilled about the rims that were on the car when I bought it, but not in a place where I could
change them, now I have the chance to upgrade to make the car look complete.

Love the blue by the way.

Yup, everything in stages. White with the green stripe would look good or even all green, if you can match the color.
