I think that might look a little odd , like gold wheels on Sprints but it's your car!

One was for sale old that I saw somewhere about six months ago that had that with no black paint and it seem to just kind of look washed out. Gordon Sauer

You could also do some black but less than the original scheme, which might look good depending on how you do it.
